Pleshey Forge was founded in the 1960’s by Harold Clements. As a traditional blacksmith, Harold built up the business using a coke forge to bend shape and create anything a customer required from steel and this included people bring their horses to the original old Pleshey Forge to be shod.
Pleshey Forge has developed strong business links with numerous local builders over the years along with the general public, for all their structural and ornamental requirements. In this time we have earned an excellent reputation for the quality of our work. With everything handmade to order we are confident our customer always achieves the finish they want.
In 2007 when Harold retired Pleshey Forge Ltd was born, the business was handed down to Harold’s son Ian along with Harold’s long suffering “boy” Shane Rayner who has worked for Harold since he was 13.
The newly formed partnership of Ian & Shane have grown the business year on year, entering into the highly competitive large structural steelwork projects, fabricating anything up to 110 ton. While still continuing the traditional family values of Pleshey Forge and producing beautiful, bespoke gates and railings thought out Essex, London and beyond.
