Fence Hurdles and Gates from Green Man Wood Crafts

September 28, 2015

In rural England, gate hurdles have been made the same way for hundreds of years. At Green Man Wood Crafts in Wiltshire, each section of gate or fencing is split, shaved, and trimmed by hand using axes, mallets, and draw knives. The result: lightweight, one-of-a-kind sections of fence.

Above: Made of chestnut, Gate Hurdles all are made to order, available in standard or custom sizes, at prices ranging from £17 (for a 2-by-1-foot size) to £70 for a 6-by-6-foot hurdle.

Above: Gates made of cleft timber have their own personalities. For more information on sizes and prices, see Green Man Wood Crafts.

Above: A young yew hedge is planted against a fence made of sweet chestnut gate hurdle sections.

Above: A tall fence made of 6-by-6-foot hurdles will keep out deer.
