How?

Cleft Chestnut Post & Rail fencing is a traditional product, using the natural quality of a wood that has been grown in this country.
It is made from chestnut poles that are cleaved by hand into pales. The skilled use of the chestnut cleaver that splits with the grain gives the maximum strength and durability.
The 2.0m or 2.9m long rails are cleft from 20-30 year old straight chestnut wood, using wedges to give an attractive natural finish.
