Cleft oak fencing. is a an incredibly durable and beautiful material . Made from heart of oak that has been cleft (split ) down the fibres of the tree so the wood is very strong and doesn't allow moisture into the severed end grain.
Cleft oak shakes
Hand cleft oak shakes are very durable as they are made from the heartwood only . They weather to a nice silvery grey colour and should last 30 to 40 years under normal conditions .
We have made several bespoke garden structures out of green oak. From single arches, screens and rose arches to arbours , walkways and a gazebo.

Cleft Oak Gates.
We make cleft oak gates to order, so they always look right for the place they are going. You can leave the style to us or if you can design it we can make it (well probably!). We've made gates for Dove Cottage, York Castle Museum, National Trust properties and lots of other people.
We've been supplying hardwood firewood for 15 years now, and like to keep our customers happy so they come back for more! As a minimum its cut the previous winter and stacked in the woodland until we can extract it and process it. Its cut to 9inch long so should go in most fires. We have regular customers and we try to make sure we can supply them through the winter,although stocks can be getting low during February.
