Gates in St Albans I Gates and Railings for Period Properties

Riverside Ironworks Ltd deliver professional design, manufacturing and installation services to clients throughout Hertfordshire, including St Albans, a former Roman city and a historic market town. We manufacture gates, bollards and barriers of all kinds at our fully equipped workshop in Kings Langley, including electric gates, security gates, wooden gates, wrought iron gates and railings, for period properties.

Our team has a wide range of ironmongery, blacksmith and joinery skills. This ensures our gates always have the design excellence and strength you’d expect from products that are carefully handcrafted by trusted fabricators. Suitable for domestic driveways and commercial premises, we offer stunning traditional collections crafted in accordance with English Heritage’s approved guidelines. Whether your property is Victorian, Georgian or you are interested in replicating a period style, we can design iron gates, wooden gates and other perimeter features to match the external appearance of any St Albans property.


We offer stunning wrought iron gates and railings crafted to original period designs. Using traditional blacksmith skills, products are forged using a combination of time-honoured Georgian and Victorian techniques and modern methods. Every part of each gate or railing is made within our workshop and our expert team keep you informed throughout the process.

Importantly, we add our own resilient finishes to our iron gates to stop them corroding and add high quality fixtures and fittings, to ensure the manual operation of your gates is always smooth, efficient and practical. If you require period-style security gates that are automated, we can also integrate automation features to turn traditional iron gates into functioning electric gates, whilst remaining faithful to your chosen design.


Although wrought iron gates and railings are the more obvious choice for Georgian and Victorian properties in St Albans, wooden gates can sometimes offer a more affordable solution. Traditional wooden gates can create a beautiful, rustic entrance to your home or business and ornamental ironwork latches or railings can be attached if desired.

At Riverside Ironworks Ltd, we offer a large range of wooden security gates, from traditional styles with hinges, drop bolt and a loop over latch, to fully automated electric gates with a video and audio entry system. Most of our wooden gates are made using hardwood timber pieces pre-treated to withstand the British elements and daily use, but we are happy to craft wooden gates out of your chosen material.


We are often asked to restore and maintain traditional wrought iron gates and railings in St Albans and the surrounding Hertfordshire areas. Our team has the skills and experience to perform gate or railings restorations for listed and heritage properties, completing repair work that is faithful to the style and age of your property.

Please note, if you own a listed property in the St Albans area or property located in a conservation zone anywhere in Hertfordshire, you’ll need to acquire listed building consent from your local authority, before we can install new wrought iron grates and railings, wooden gates, security gates, electric gates or any bollards and barriers on the premises.

For traditional gates and railings designed, installed or repaired to suit your period property in St Albans, call Riverside Ironworks Ltd on 01923 263 999 or 07970 079 168.
