Balustrades and Railings

A complete blacksmith-made balustrade and railing service, including a unique bespoke design service.

Spiral Balustrade

This hand-forged metal spiral balustrade was designed and made by Dominic Hesp, head blacksmith at West Country Blacksmiths.

A balustrade or railing is not only a key safety feature but should also complement and enhance the environment and architecture of its surroundings.

The team at West Country Blacksmiths are delighted to offer their considerable experience in metalwork design, production and installation to create a balustrade or railing that is at once individual and personal yet suits the budget and requirements of the project.

A balustrade or railing can be designed and made to be as simple, traditional or artistically elaborate as the project allows. With West Country Blacksmiths, you can be assured that the people who are helping you achieve your dream have the all-round skills and experience that can only be achieved by extensive hands-on working in the industry.

Hurlstone point railing, designed, made and installed by the Blacksmiths of Allerford Forge Blacksmithing, to protect people using the coastal path between Minehead and Porlock on behalf of the National Trust. The railings have bes designed to look traditional, yet industrial and have been finished with a galvanised finish to protect the metalwork.

Railings designed and made for the National Trust at Hurlstone Point, a prominent landmark overlooking cliffs on the ever-popular South West Coast Path. The railings were designed to look traditional, yet industrial, and have a galvanised finish to protect the metalwork.

As is the case with all their architectural metalwork projects, the team offer a unique bespoke design service, in which all balustrade and railing proposals are discussed with and designed by the tradesmen who will be creating the metalwork. This system ensures that all considerations can be made and all aspects of the project addressed and advised on from the start.

The team work with all forms of metal, including wrought and cast iron, stainless steel, brass and bronze, and are experienced in both producing new metalwork and undertaking general and historic metalwork restorations.
