Nigel has a long history of restoration work going back to the ‘80’s. He prides himself in renovating and preserving ironwork from the past for future generations to see. From the restoration of steam engines and train boilers to old engine castings, Victorian machinery and structural bridge and building repairs. The restoration service now covers large gates. They have a full casting service and are able to replicate most components. The full forge facility allows the forging of stock bar up to 8” thickness. They can weld anything weldable, including alloys and castings, however, they like to replace like for like wherever possible using traditional fire welding and clipping techniques.
The forge also offers an on and off site blast cleaning service using abrasive and non-abrasive cleaning media. This allows the precise cleaning of ancient artifacts without damage to the surface structure.
