Anything Outdoors is proud to announce that we are endorsed by The Cleft Wood Company to supply and install its range of bespoke fences and gates.
The Cleft Wood Company are locally based woodsmen who use age old skills and 25 years of experience to hand make products from English Oak.
All timber is sourced from local thinnings and cleft (split along the grain, rather than sawn) to give character and strength. The shape of the post, rail or paling follows the shape of the tree from which it came.
Gate and post mortices are hand cut and the palings attached to rails using traditional rose head nails manufactured using an original Victorian nail cutting machine. This attention to detail ensures that the fencing is historically authentic and fits the landscape extremely well.
Anything Outdoors is happy to discuss your requirements, recommend, specify, source and install your bespoke Cleft Wood Company order.
For further information on The Cleft Wood Company, please visit their web site http://www.cleftwood.com/.
Cleft Wood products have been installed in a number of National Trust sites (you can view an installation locally at The New Inn demonstration garden, Stowe Landscape Gardens) and have been used in prize winning gardens at Chelsea as well as many historic houses and small gardens across the country.
The demonstration garden at Stowe includes: Charlecote Paling, Post and Rail, Stowe Paling (lat top), Stowe Paling (pointed top), Cleft Arch, Five Bar gate, Play Den and Summer/Woodman's shack.
