Timber Firing Points, Warminster Ranges

Our original Facebook post at the beginning of November showed that we were making a number of these. We mentioned the fact that they would be painted cream in and concreted to the ground.   But we didn’t get many replies as to what they would be used for, so we thought you’d like to know the answer!

They are in fact timber firing points we installed at Warminster Ranges, all made in-house.  And they had to be painted country cream as they didn’t want bright white.

Other projects we’ve undertaken which don’t involve trees or fencing may be found here

Pond refurbishment Marston

Another one for our Everything Else section of the website!

A recent pond refurbishment with 15 years of silt and leaf mould removed.  We retained some water and all the fish and then laid a new liner.  The pond was then refilled to which we added the retained water to get the microbes started.

To see some more examples of our work which isn’t tree surgery, tree surveys or fencing, please see here.
