Cleft Oak Barrier Gate

Bespoke oak gates, handmade to order using the unique growing qualities of individual trees. We custom make our oak gates to suit your requirements. Each tree is cleft (split) down, then trimmed to size. The gates are morticed and tenoned in the traditional way and fixed with rose head nails. Each gate is unique, durable and beautiful.
