Foot stools and occasional tables

 Coming Soon to Grove Cottage Forge

As well as working on curtain poles and brackets we are looking forward to introducing a new range of foot stools and occasional tables here at Grove Cottage Forge in 2018. Graham is busy putting the final touches to the designs at the moment so we hope to launch them on the website very soon. As we name all of our wrought iron products after the surrounding villages in Suffolk, we are going to be calling this new range ‘Pettistree’ which is our neighbouring village. Looking towards Pettistree from our Wickham Market forge we observe our neighbours horses happily grazing in the fields, which reminds me of one of our favourite pass times during the winter months.

We love to support the point to points in this area. This is a form of horse racing, where hunting horses and amateur riders jump over fences – otherwise known as a ‘steeplechase’. The word originates from the point of the church steeple which was the highest point that marked the end of a race across the countryside. We were so pleased last year when we watched our neighbours horse named ‘Pettistree‘ win his maiden race at the steeplechase. Last week his stable mate ‘Amigo’ came in second place – a sheer delight to watch before we start our week back in the Forge.
