The ‘Sherwood’ Wrought Iron Estate Gate

FREE Delivery*

With a strong frame, ornate features and topped off with a crowning halo of scrollwork, the Sherwood gate makes a spectacular addition to any driveway.

Product Description


The meticulous attention to detail in this gate sets it apart from any other ready made gate on the market. A mixture of plain and twisted square infill bars are used to give a textured and luxurious feel which you would normally only see on a bespoke design.

Accentuated with twisted baskets and simple spearheads, these details bring the design to life, adding that extra touch of quality.

The decorative bushes punctuate the ends of the 16mm square, double grooved infill bars which add the final touch of class to this elegant design.

We would highly recommend opting for the patina finish on these gates as once the striking details have had a light metallic brushing, the highlighted effect is both visually stunning and expensive looking.

Gate Finishes

Primer only

We can supply our gates with a basic ‘black base primer’. You will need to paint these gates yourselves immediately, prior to installation to protect them against the elements and annual maintenance will be required to protect them. The primer layer offers the best surface to paint directly on to. Our ten year warranty will cover you for weld joints and hinges but will not cover rust.


Hot-dipped galvanizing is a process of coating mild steel by immersing the gates in to a bath of molten zinc at a temperature of around 900 °F. Your gates undergo a chemical cleaning process before being dipped to remove any substrates.

The zinc coating, which bonds fully to the ironwork guarantees the longest possible lifetime for gates which are affected by outside elements. The other benefit to galvanising is that your gates will need virtually no maintenance and will never rust.

The best news about galvanising…your warranty gets extended to 25 years!


Painted black

We have formulated our own Smithy Black High Build Vinyl which we use on all of our galvanised gates.

Unlike standard ‘powder coating’ which can leave ironwork with a plastic-like finish, our paint delivers a soft sheen appearance, giving a more upmarket look & feel. It also allows finishes such as patina to be applied for that extra special touch to make the details pop.

Patina to finish

We have put lots of design flourishes in to our gate designs and the best way to make them really pop is to lightly brush patina to accentuate the details. This gives our gates the unique luxe feel not normally associated with readymade gates.

Patina colours are gold, silver or bronze, all of which look stunning against the black and provide stunning, subtle highlighting which brings the design to life.

Measuring Guide

How to measure your gap accurately

Firstly, if you have pillars, posts, existing gates or nothing at all; the process is the same.

The measurement you need is the GAP – we adjust the gate size automatically for hinges and posts if required.

Your Gap size is the smallest of the 3 measurements in the diagram below.
