We are a family run business with Clive Martin & Emma Hines (brother & sister) leading a small but dedicated team consisting of, Beth in the equestrian shop, and Andy 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. Don sadly passed away in December 2017,but Audrey still lives at the farm, and always remains quite active helping out wherever she 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, however, after 36 years in retail, the decision was made to close this side of the business, and concentrate solely on the timber side. 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, the business 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.
