Heaver Estate Conservation Area Railings

The Heaver Estate is a conservation area in Tooting, South West London. The estate is the living testament to local builder Lord Alfred Heaver and is situated in what was the grounds of the old Bedford Hill House. It was constructed during the 19th century and was known for it's red brick houses with ornate masonry and intricate wrought iron railings.

We managed to source an original railing panel in good condition and have created a mould enabling us to produce new Heaver design railings in cast metal. Our railings are identical to the originals, a much closer match than the imitation design aluminium panels that have been installed in the area in recent times.

Heaver Design Gates And Masonry

Along with railing panels we also have moulds for the original gates in both double and single sizes. We can fit the metalwork into existing masonry (if it's suitably sound structurally) or into new Portland limestone coping pieces, as per the original build.
