Historic Boundary lines are often marked with mature trees, often with tree preservation orders (TPO's). Naturally the property owner does not want to concede ground and mark the  boundary on a new line further into their property. Our Traditional Estate Fencing is a continuous welded fence, this allows us to weld horizontal rails upto trees and other obstacles , giving the appearance that it flows straight through the tree and out the other side.  The trees carry on growing unhindered ,  the TPO man is happy and calm is preserved.

A common question we are asked on our site visits is how to keep dogs in and rabbits out of domestic gardens. Our customers understand the benefits of Iron Railings but are anxious not to detract from the overall attractiveness of the fenceline. Our best solution is to incorporate rabbit style netting to our Traditional Estate Railings. We are able to do this neatly by inserting 2 'lambwires' into the fenceline, this allows us to attach the netting without it bellowing in and out between the individual posts. When you stand back from this Cambridgeshire Estate fence the netting is almost invisible - keeping the woofers in.

Estate Fencing enhances its surroundings. Our site visits are crucial and allow us to fully assess the site and your requirments. Our many years of experience allow us to add detail to your vision, ensuring that your new parkland fence exceeds your expectations. Estate Fencing often replaces post and rail fencing, a small change to the actual fenceline can soften the overall effect it has on the landscape. Here you see a 5 rail Parkland Fence in Hertfordshire with kissing gate and cattle grid surround. This forms an impressive approach that befitts this stunning property.

Waitrose have a fabulous Farm Shop at Leckford in Hampshire and we were recently commissioned to match and compliment their old Traditional Estate Fencing - our new continuously welded estate fence and gates now flow perfectly with the old. The site created some interesting issues, with all welding works having to be completed out of hours so as to not effect the day to day business. The Farm Shop forms an intrinsic part of the shop window to The Waitrose 4000 acre Leckford Estate . Situated along the stunning Test Valley near Stockbridge , it is well worth a visit. 

We are able to finish our 5 rail estate fencing in any paint colour. Here you see a 5 rail Burghley Estate Fence in Hertfordshire finished in a light grey colour. Clients and Architects specify a particular RAL paint number and we can make to order. The 20mm top round rail and lower 16mm round rails flow with the undulating ground. You will also notice the top lamb wire, we then hog ring a 900mm roll of rabbit netting, keeping the rabbits out and the dogs in. This is a particularly neat way of securing the netting. Some clients ask us to punch the holes in any case to future proof the fence.

Traditional Estate Fencing install new Parkland fences for Property Developers and Builders throughout the UK. Our 1.2m 5 rail park fence is complimented by the new privet hgedge. If space is limited the landscape architects choose to just mark the driveway with large Gate Posts , rather than clutter the entrance with gates. Here you see a wide shared entrance to two New Build properties.  We add extra detail to our gate posts using cast iron finials, our most popular being either cast iron balls or in this case our Rutland Tops , a classic design from the late 1700's

The Old Pebble Mill At One Studios have now been demolished and a smart new dental hospital now stands in its place. Traditional Estate Fencing has installed a 5 rail metal fence, this park fence is 1.2m high and has a 20mm top rail with 4 lower rails each of 25x6mm. These brown field sites are always a challenge with much hardcore and concrete just under the surface. This is to be expected and we postcrete every post as standard on brown field sites. This 5 rail parkland style fence now seperates The Dental Hospital from the beautifully landscaped 'Tranquility Garden' - an Oxymoron in anyones book !

The Traditional Company supply Traditional Parkland Fencing to Contractors, landscape architects , property developers, local authorities and private individuals. Estate Fencing can be delivered on a supply only basis or supplied and installed by our own highly skilled teams. We install throughout the UK, this traditional form of steel fencing looks as good in a town setting as it does out in the countryside. Here we see a Traditional 1.2m high, 5 rail Burghley estate fence in Gloucestershire marking out a new right of way.

When landscape designers and architects specify wrought iron fencing, one of the biggest dilemmas is the finish. Do you choose a painted estate fence whereby you leave the client with a pristine fence upon completion or do you present an option whereby the fence is not painted at all and is allowed to weather off. Reaching its full color over a 6-12 month period. Both ways have there own advantages. Here you see a fully weathered estate fence in Wiltshire enjoying the last of the Winter's Sun.

The Traditional Company is a supplier to the National trust, we recently completed a commission to remove the existing estate railings and reinstate 1200 m of galvanised parkland fencing at Osterley Park in Middlesex, together with a number of estate gates and steel kissing gates. The existing fence comprised of many types of old parking fencing including some of the H style cast posts.

The main estate driveway and public carpark areas experience significant pressure from the public and horses / cattle so the strongest possible long lasting park fence was required. The National trust choose a welded galvanised steel fence (Highland Park fence) , with every post postcreted. The weld joints were then treated with a heavy zinc paint with the entire fence line being finished with two coats of a Galvacoat black paint.

Great to see that the wonderful restoration work that Lord Cobham has completed at Hagley Hall has been recognized by the BBC and Countryfile. This Grade 1 registered parkland in Worcestershire has been tirelessly brought back to life over the last 5 years. The Palladian Bridge, Rotunda and countless water features and cascades have been restored in what is certainly a labour of love, with much work still planned. Certainly worth a visit if you are in Worcestershire. The Traditional Company is delighted to be associated with Hagley Hall and the Traditional Estate fencing around the estate.

Traditional Estate fencing was delighted to be asked to renew the fencing on the Henley Royal Regatta site. Here we see our 5 rail Highland parkland fence forming an elegant sweep through the grounds. This steel fence will be allowed to weather naturally and has already melted into its surroundings, this style of estate fence is our strongest with all rails being 20mm rounds. This fence is fully welded with every upright postcreate into the ground, capable of tolerating even the largest of rowers. Removeable panels and pedestrian pathways were incorporated within the fenceline to allow for maximum access during Henley Royal Regatta week.

Galvanising is the process of coating steel in an outer protective layer of zinc to prevent rusting. Some architects (especially for new builds and commercial sites) specify a galvanised estate fence. We weld our galvanised fences, this creates a strong seamless fence line, with no collars and pins. Painting galvanised fences has historically been tricky, we recommend a product called Galvacoat which covers and holds its colour well. Galvanised estate fencing can be supplied direct to Trade / Private individuals for self installation or supplied and fitted by our own teams.

Having the opportunity to instal a new driveway provides a fabulous opportunity to maximise views and features of a property. Often the house may not be in the 'perfect spot' and the positioning of a new driveway gives a wonderful chance to visit these special features. Here you see our 5 rail Burghley Traditional Estate Fence set well back from the gravel driveway wending its way to the main gates with spectacular views of the Wiltshire Downs in the distance.

Earlier in the spring I was delighted to return to a classic Estate in Cambridgeshire some 15 years after my first visit. My memories of this wonderful setting... fabulous house, sweeping lawns leading down to the river with Parkland views to every direction. How this vista had changed in so few years, the magnificent trees (mainly beech) had peaked and were now gone. Re-planting had been done, but sadly too late, the scale had been lost. Replanting should be planned and be on a regular cycle. All young parkland trees will need protecting from stock and deer. Our large tree guards ,with fluted tops protect the lower branches. But also provide a valuable element of scale in these open spaces. English Parklands are fragile and are always in flux.

It was great to see one of our Burghley Parkland fences featured in Country Life this week. We worked closely with the developers over the last 18 months. The Driveway of this new build now elegantly sweeps through the park bordered by our Traditional Steel 5 Rail Estate Fence. A blank canvas is great, but symmetry is the key aspect with these drives.

The Panshanger Oak is England's largest single stemmed oak tree. With a girth of 7.6m it is truly impressive and is believed to have been planted by Queen Elizabeth 1. It sits in a Repton Landscape near Hertford. Lafarge Tarmac have done an extraordinary job of returning this landscape post gravel extraction,back to nature. Many new footpaths have been opened to the public allowing access to this beautiful Mimram valley. A Traditional Cheshire fence with curved top now protects the Panshanger Oak in a subtle but effective manner.

Parkland Fencing has a unique way of being able to tie striking new architectural designs to more traditional aspects. Our brief was to provide safety and security from the surrounding river without interfering with the view from or to the Main House. The bespoke aluminium bridge and striking new Garden Room, from contrasting additions to the 17th Century property. The fencing , in its British Racing green melts into the garden leaving these ultra modern designs to shine though. What other fence style would have worked this well??

Much has been written about Country House Security - Traditional Estate fencing will act as a deterrent to trespassers but as Charles Hooper explains in 'The Country House' (1907) There are those , who will get to the other side (of a fence) , even if they have to resort to an axe or scaling ladder; this class can be quietly killed and buried without awakening any great protest from the outside world' Whilst this solution to trespassers isn't trending at present an inherent clash remains between functional security and style, very few property owners want to be in a 'Jurassic Park' style environment (and by the way they still got out).

Natural barriers are an excellent start and few work as well as a rivers for keeping people out. On the flip side there is an inherent risk to children falling in and here we see our 5 rail wrought iron fence in Buckinghamshire fitted with an 800mm high rabbit netting, this is neatly attached inside the fence to high tensile wire, preventing young children clambering up the fenceline. This can be unclipped at a later date if no longer required.

Traditional Estate Fencing supply and install wrought iron fencing throughout the UK. In addition to Private Clients we also instal our estate fences for local authorities. Here we see a rural Village Hall in Essex with a newly installed 5 rail Highland Estate Fence - Our brief was to produce the sturdiest of fences in the classic parkland style, not this time to resist cattle but instead to handle the inevitable abuse from children clambering on it from the nearby playground. Every post is concreted in, with every joint on the metal fence line welded. A fitting fenceline for this village to enjoy for years to come.

In 2014 we saw a significant increase in the popularity of naturally weathered estate fencing. The absence of a primer and top coat allows the elements to quickly work on the wrought iron fence and a wonderful rustic autumnal look quickly appears, giving the impression that the fenceline has been around for many decades. This accelerated seasoning of the mild steel fence line will undoubtedly affect its longevity, but this is relative and it will still last for a long , long time. Here we see a Burghley 5 Rail Estate Fence in Wiltshire, fully welded approximately 2 months after installation.

Wrought Iron fencing will certainly enhance your properties value in cash terms - that's a fact, but value is not all about money. Estate fencing sets the tone and an anticipation for a property that harks back to times past. Here we see the prestigious Wedding venue at Blake Hall, Essex in full swing with Traditional Estate fencing's 5 rail Burghley fence framing the driveway. England at its best. http://www.blakehall.co.uk
