Sourced locally and cut from managed rotational woodland our sweet chestnut post and rail is the most environmentally friendly product on the market. Chestnut post and rail fencing is suitable for a number of applications such as boundaries, property entrances, parkland and paddocks. Sweet chestnut timber is often viewed as an alternative to oak and although it is a lighter specie, it is stable, hard wearing and straight grained which allows the wood to be easily split. Sweet chestnut has a very low sapwood content, a very high heartwood content and has high tannin levels (tannin is a natural preservative) and consequently requires no timber preservative treatment.

Traditional cleft chestnut post and rail fencing has been used to keep animals in or just to enhance a garden for many years. It’s makes a very strong and rustic looking fence. The posts come in 2.0m long lengths and can either be morticed for 2 rails or 3 rails. The rails are usually 2.9m in length however we offer a 2m long option, and tapered on each end to allow them to fit into the mortices. Both the posts and rails are cleaved (splitting) which follows the natural grain of the timber helping to repel water, the posts cleaved in halves and rails in quarters.
