Some recent examples of work in progress and UK installations of estate fencing and tree guards from our Facebook page.
In recent years we have been on the limit our power supply here at Manor Farm This has been increasingly problematic as office lights dim and we lose power in certain areas when work shop compressors and welders fire up. With the business expanding, we have doubled our welding bays and have added almost a dozen new presses, ring roles, saws and other pieces of workshop equipment as well as fume extraction in all areas and new lighting to come. In the middle of last year we commissioned UK Power networks to upgrade our power supply which will be tripled going from 60 amps to 200 amps. We will be up and running with this from the end of January. We undertook all the ground works ourselves installing a GRPO cabinet, digging trenches by hand and laying a 100m of cable as thick as your arm. In addition to these works we are currently installing a 200m2 mezzanine floor in the workshop and look to start work in early March on a 2 storey office pod on the front of the building. It’s been a long journey but by the middle of 2019 we will have a facility here that will really allow us to fulfil our potential as the main British Manufacturer of Estate Fencing, Metal Tree Guards and all country iron work so hold tight and keep buying British.

550 m of our Style 2 Metal Estate Fencing installed in Lincolnshire a couple of weeks ago. Yet again we were blessed with some lovely autumn weather which made this traditional Park Fencing installation very straight forward and easy. The fencing layout and the undulations of the land allowed for some fantastic looking curves and contours. We install a loose continuous welded Estate Fencing system which allows us to follow ground contours and curves, in a way that just isn’t possible with pre-fabricated panels, and provide a very strong durable metal fence that will be enjoyed by generations to come. As with so many of our customers this year they elected to go for a rust finish fence. In 6 months to a year this Parkland Fencing will look like it has been there forever. We offer a 50 year structural guarantee on all the Estate Fencing we install but would estimate a 100 year plus lifespan. When you consider this metal fences longevity, it really stacks up economically against wooden fencing than clients will reinstall many times over the years. As well as being busy with Metal fencing installations and other iron work projects we are also improving our infrastructure here. We have commissioned UK Power networks to triple our power supply and last few photos show clearance work for a new transformer and trenching and the installation of a GPRO cabinet to house switch gear , meters etc for the new supply. Final photo is of today’s dispatch of our Tradition Metal Tree Guards. ... See more

Myself and Lee folding end straps on post thumpers
Picture shows end straps being folded for our Feature Top Estate Fencing hand held post drivers. They can be found on the " Estate Fencing Catalogue/Supply Only "our web site. We sell them to customers who purchase our loose ,weld together Traditional Estate Fencing systems. The thumpers we are making today are for our style 3 & 4 metal Park Fencing posts. The thumper has an internal profile that matches the post top so distortion is minimized when the posts are driven in. We sell these @ £100 + vat . They weigh 25 kgs and are sleeved to fit the Metal fence posts perfectly. From 1990 onwards, for the first 8 years of this business ,i put up about 5000m of Iron Parkland Fencing a year, using one of these. These post thumpers are ideal for customers doing one off jobs who dont want to invest in hydraulic drivers.

Dorling transport with lorries into us on Friday and today to deliver twenty six metal Parkland Tree Guards to the Balcaskie Estate in Fife. These classic tree protectors are all in a rust finish and at 80kgs each are never going to corrode away in any client’s lifetime. We would expect a 100 year plus lifespan. We offer a range of metal tree guards in a variety of finishes, and with planting season upon us, anyone who is planting a lot of trees in a country environment, should consider rust finish tree guards as a serious option. However if this is not for you we also offer Galvanized and galvanized and painted versions for all our range of tree guards. Also 600m approx of our Metal Estate fencing bound for Lincolnshire along with several different sizes of our metal field gates, corner posts and a quadrant end finisher. We will install this traditional Metal Park fencing in November but have delivered it to site while it is still dry enough to bump it out around the site. ... See more
More perfect working weather for installing Estate Fencing. About 60 m of our style 2 Metal Fencing, with 4ft and 6ft classic Metal Filed Gates, installed to rust. In about 1 year this traditional fence will be fully rusted and look like it been up for years. We are installing more and more rust finish metal fences and this year they will account for about a third of what we have put up. If you have a period property it’s certainly worth considering. It looks great, zero maintenance and its cheaper. Now we are into autumn our rust finish Metal Tree Guards are selling well too. ... See more
