Cleft Oak Gates


Until the beginning of the 20th century five bar gates, made from cleft oak, were common in the countryside. However the technique had been lost, and there were very few examples left inside Britain, until Richard began to produce them a few years ago. He uses traditional techniques to produce unique gates.
