   Having spent most of my life working on farms across England,
I was used to making and mending many things iron.

 In 1998 I attended two of Richard Quinnell’s short blacksmithing courses at 
his forge in Leatherhead,
Surrey. This has set me off on a second career 
which I find very satisfying and rewarding.

I have now settled in a most beautiful part of Devon, overlooking the
, with my wife Angela and my small flock of pet sheep. 
   Angela is an accomplished potter and glass worker.

   Most of my work is now commissioned - I make what you want – 
particularly with regard to railings, gates and handrails. 
Similarly with shoe, cd and wine racks they are made to fit 
   where you want them. 
   Prices are, therefore, as a guide so please e-mail your requirements for a quote.

   Having spent a lifetime working with animals I try to capture 
the essence of them with my range of Arkweld Animals.
