Wessex Forge offers a wide range of Handmade Traditional English Wrought Ironwork for the Garden and Home direct to customers from its Forge in the Cathedral City of Wells Somerset, England.

The product range has been developed over the years to appeal to serious gardeners who are looking for high quality and robustly made products.

The products reflect the style of the Traditional English Garden.

We use only the finest materials and our garden ironwork is made to last. 

For example our garden arches, gazebos and obelisks are constructed from solid rod and not from cheaper tube which can easily rust away. Our Park Bench Seats are handmade from heavy gauge iron and will last a lifetime.

We provide the opportunity for serious gardeners in particular and other discriminating purchasers to obtain handmade wrought iron products for the garden such as arches, gazebos, obelisks and park bench seats.

An extensive range of colours and surface finishes is available including Green, Black, White, Hand Painted Verdigris, Natural Rusted, Etch Galvanised and Unpainted Galvanised. We can often provide special colours when requested. Please ask us if you have something in mind.

In fact mentioning special colours leads to the subject of our "made to measure service". As we make most of what we sell we can often make one of our products to a special size. This is our "made to measure service." Please ask us but do remember that a "made to measure" item will often cost a little more.

Of course many of our garden gates are made to measure.

As well as our range of robust handmade wrought iron products we also offer a number of interesting items for the garden which will attract the attention of the serious gardener. These include Waterways. Waterways is a small funnel like device which is an aid to watering Hanging Baskets. Use a Waterways whenever you plant out a Hanging Basket and you can be sure to be able to effectively water the hanging basket however hot the weather. The Waterways direct the water to the roots of the plants in the Hanging Basket. For more details click on the reference to Waterways on the left hand side of this page.

Another item with a difference is the 12"/30cm diameter Deep Hanging Basket which we unashamedly call "The best Hanging Basket in the World". Our "Deep" hanging basket features an attractive traditional round shape but it also has a flat bottom. This makes it very stable when planting out and much easier to control when taken down for watering.

The other important feature of the Deep hanging basket is its extra depth. It holds much more compost than the normal 12" diameter Hanging Basket and therefore is much less likely to dry out however hot the weather might be. Click on the reference to Best Hanging Basket on the left hand side of the page.

As well as Handmade Traditional English Ironwork for the Garden we also make items for the home including a comprehensive range of Candleholders. Our range of Candleholders include floor standing designs as well as those intended for the floor or wall.
