Alex has done a wonderful gate using a combination of ideas from us and his own input. Excellent experience from start to finish with the result that we have a unique entrance to our garden. Happy to recommend Alex to anyone.

Excellent Workmanship

We searched everywhere for a decent blacksmith to supply and fit railings and a gate and we found one in, A.D Price, Metal craft, who has done a first class and very professional job in carrying out the above task, at a very reasonable cost too, so if your looking for outstanding workmanship,look no further than, A.D.Price, Metalcraft, Ellesmere Port, Wirral.

Blacksmith tuition day

Just spent the day in Alex' forge learning the basic skills of forging and metal craft, both he and his assistant were very attentive tutors with vast experience between them, I got the experience as a present and will be returning for more experience when I decide what to make next. Would highly recommend adprice metalcraft if you want a unique experience and learn an age-old skill.

excellent personal service

We asked Mr Price to make a gate for indoor use,to keep muddy dogs in their 'drying' area,while still seeing the family life in the kitchen through the iron gateway.
He visited the house ,made careful measurements, discussed design and quoted a very reasonable price. Although this was just days before Christmas he surprised us by coming back with gate , fitting it perfectly, in time for the festivities and crowded kitchen!
We are pleased with the quality and appearance of the gate which has been designed and built to blend well with the room fittings.
From our experience we can recommend Alec to others wholeheartedly.
