We are a family run business with Clive Martin & Emma Hines (brother & sister) leading a small but dedicated team consisting of Molly, Zoe, Katherine Seline and Paige in the equestrian shop, and Andy and Rob in the workshop supported by Anji (Clive’s wife) in the office.
The business was established in 1911 and was farmed by Clive & Emma's great Grandfather who traded as F. Martin & Son, it was then passed down to their parents, Don & Aud, who still live at the farm after their retirement, although they always remain quite active helping out wherever they can. Over the last thirty years "Martins" has evolved from a mixed arable & livestock farm selling a small amount of feed, to one of the largest independently owned equestrian based shops in the area. The joinery workshops produce a range of bespoke outdoor joinery and steelwork, although having made many large bespoke timber structures in the past, which you can see on the portfolio/projects page, they now mainly concentrate on gates plus a range of fencing, trellis, pergolas and gazebos etc all made to order. Also in stock there is a large range of pressure treated timber, posts, fencing, ironmongery and bark.
