Our Protech Evo 2 made easy work of fixing 500m rolls of Tornado HT8/80/15 stock netting at Manton Downs nr Marlborough (not the racing yard neighbouring farmer).

Before you put the fence up you have to clear the path;
More in Savernnake this week with Alex Draper acting as pathfinder!
A brighted morning today….
Our task here was to replace 1800m of old fencing with new standard stock fencing for Natural England. Our Evo Post Driver was put to good use!
This is a continuation of work we have undertaken earlier in the year. The Equinet and creosote fencing is to keep the polo ponies in and the dogs out and the new paddocks are for yearlings and resting racehorses. Equinet is from the UK Tornado brand and the UK equivalent for Keepsafe which is a USA product.
Great job by Alex Draper, Dave Thompson and Adam Patterson.
We replaced 250m for a local client this week erected by Tristan Lenny Warden Gordon Bottomley with help from Tad and Kieran.
And then back to our 19k meters job within the Savernake Forest.
New cattle handling unit constructed for the project to reintroduce cattle to Savernake Forest. The handling unit is part of the same fence project as posted before and we are just about to start another pen consisting of 10,000m of fencing!
This is an ongoing project running over several months.
Here we show Dave’s video featuring some 3,500m approx of post and stud rail we erected to make the side fence to the racecourse gallops. This took us about 10 days to complete.
We then needed to add a number of 5-bar timber gates and some additional fencing to ensure the horses can be safely secured. You’ll see a couple of the gates we painted white which was in keeping with them being at the side of the gallops.
We are undertaking a large ongoing woodland project near Marlborough, creating new fenced areas to allow grazing within Savernake Forest; this will allow cattle back into the ancient forest to help with its management. The fencing consists of 2 strands of barbed wire and a single strand of plain wire.
