In the creation of historic ornamental wrought ironwork, exceptional skill was demanded from the smiths of the time. Quality restoration of such work demands like for like materials and mastery of the original techniques. Topp & Co has over 30 years experience in both the conservation and restoration of historic wrought and cast ironwork. We pride ourselves in having the biggest workshop in the country consisting of fully trained smiths with similar skills to those of the 18th and 19th centuries, for example wrought iron worked at the anvil by forge welding techniques. Our blacksmiths are also fully conversant with the materials used and their properties i.e. puddled and charcoal wrought iron as well as cast iron.
