We specialise in Traditional Hand Forged Ironmongery, are based in the market town of Alton, Hampshire, and are surrounded by an area steeped in architectural treasures and properties of historical importance.
We offer a friendly & personal service and take pride in the relationships we have built up with our customers, many of whom have dealt with Period House Group (PHG) over many years. Projects we have dealt with, range from supplying one off pieces to a full barn conversion, theme parks, film sets, castles, both here in the UK and worldwide.
Since 2006 we have grown and adapted to the many global changes, online sales are a key growth area and we now supply worldwide, with an increased product offering and the option of bespoke work we can cater for all of your needs. We have a fully equipped forge with beeswaxing equipment, and can craft and finish virtually anything you can dream.
PHG have supplied goods for film sets, listed buildings, period properties and conservation projects. We have developed a range of Ironware to compliment all types of Renovation or New builds. If you cannot find the items you need, please contact us as we also carry out bespoke work.
In 2009 we included the From the Anvil Brand, having gained much experience in this field, we soon found these products to be our top sellers, due to the vast range and quality. Now we work very closely with this supplier to achieve a common goal of quality products stock availability and literature.
In 2011 we bought Dartington Steel, a long term supplier of British made hand forged ironmongery, now a quality in-house brand, all of these products can now be found on our website, link Dartington.
In 2015 we launched a new website, we set out to build a better web site which is more customer friendly and also brings PHG up to date with the latest technology.
In 2016 we moved to new premises, bigger and and better. The new site had a larger showroom, forge, and generally 50% more space.
Moving on, in 2021 the company changed hands to the current owners and relocated to Hampshire from Doncaster, to a building double the size of the previous one. This has opened up a much wider range of products and services, with access to greater expertise in the field. Our roots, though, haven’t changed; this is a family business at heart, whose knowledge, values and integrity are widely appreciated.
