Fine Iron is a family run architectural ironworkers situated in the heart of the Brecon Beacons in South Wales. With a Blacksmithing family history tracing back as far as 1587 and current collective experience of over 60 years, we believe this gives us an instinctive understanding of our craft.
Lee (company director) undertook a 4 year apprenticeship in 1987 where he was fortunate enough to work on some prestigious projects including the famous Kensington Palace Gates, the restoration of the gates and railings surrounding the Albert Memorial and decorative iron grilles in the Tower of London to mention but a few. After this he worked as a Journeyman blacksmith to broaden his skills and develop a greater understanding and appreciation for the craftsmanship and detail in traditional ironwork – driven by his own desire to study its construction, material traits and characteristics.
In 1998 Lee founded Fine Iron, which began humbly with just himself and his brother working tirelessly from a small cleared area at the back of a cowshed! Fine Iron has grown somewhat since then and we have had the pleasure of being involved with many prestigious projects over the years. Our clients have included Walter Lilly, Beck Interiors, Beck Peppiett, the NHS, Philip Wagner, Durtnalls, Acanthus Clews, The Great Yarmouth Tourist Authority, Torfaen County Borough Council, Borras Construction and many more. We have carried out bespoke commissioned works for retail developments such as The Duck and Rice, Christian Dior, Ralph Lauren and The Chiltern Firehouse along with numerous restoration projects and private residential projects around the world.
Fine Iron’s main focus is on the design and manufacture of our wide range of exquisite porches, canopies and verandas, traditional and modern staircase balustrades and handrail and we also specialise in the restoration of historic ironwork. All of our ironwork is handmade to order in house by our select team of skilled craftsmen and it is very much a family business with Lee’s brother Andrew working more on restoration projects, his son in law Chris working mainly on balustrades and in the office his eldest daughter Mikhaila and her mum Deb are the main points of contact for all porch, veranda and canopy enquiries.
The Fine Iron family firmly believe in putting our customers at the heart of everything we do, which is why we continuously review our processes and invest in the latest technology, equipment and materials. We take great pride in delivering high quality wrought iron products that truly make an entrance and stand the test of time.
