We are delighted with our new Cleft fencing which welcomes all visitors to The Farm. Cleft Fencing is a robust design that has been traditionally used for hundreds of years at our local National Trust site, Charlecote Park, where Shakespeare was allegedly caught poaching venison.
The fence’s design has not changed much in that time, just a few tweaks according to the woodman of the moment. The different height palings are said to confuse the deer which do not like the irregular gaps. It also makes a pleasing pattern to the eye. The fence has also been reproduced at Highgrove to surround the Prince of Wales’ chickens.
