Chestnut Fencing

We sell chestnut fencing both 3ft and 4ft high, in 5 and 10 yard rolls, It is made from cleft chestnut pales gripped at the top and bottom by four straining wires for strength and can be supplied with two or three rows of wire. The pales spaced 3" or 4" apart and are pointed at the top, which provides good security as the fences are not easy to climb over!

Chestnut fencing is a traditional product which has been grown in Kent and Sussex for centuries. It is inherently strong, being made from Sweet Chestnut which is an attractive and durable hardwood.

Chestnut fencing looks good. It enhances virtually any scene when new and it improves over the passage of time, blending into its background as only a natural product can. 

Chestnut fencing is not only used as a permanent fence but also for temporary fencing where access has to be controlled. E.g. at public events to control crowds or contain animals, for soil or beach erosion control and for snow fencing.

Erecting chestnut fencing

Erect the posts - both intermediate and strainer (bracing with a diagonal strut) at intervals of 7 to 8 feet (2.1 - 2.4m). Unroll the fencing, fix at one end to a straining post, pull taut and staple to each post in turn.

A great advantage of chestnut fencing is its flexibility - it is easy to wrap around corners and follow the contours of the land.
