Potters Fields Screens

Potters Fields, Southwark

Metalcraft was approached by landscape architects Gross Max, to create unique screens for the entrance to this historic area. Our company was sent concept drawings and designs and tasked with developing these ideas and aspirations to make an aesthetically stunning but functional screen worthy of this landmark. Metalcrafts design team proposed cast iron tiles to be bolted together to construct the screen. Individual patterns for the tiles were created from which castings were manufactured and used to complete this project. A steel beam above with laser cut lettering, spaced away from the beam, was used to form the sign.

Potters Fields is a small public park situated in the London Borough of Southwark. The name originates from the many potters who lived and worked in the area in the 17th and 18th centuries. Originally named ‘Potts Fielde’ the area dates back to its first use on a London map in 1681 when the area was the hub of the English Delftware trade. The first named pottery in the Potters Fields Park records is Pickleherring Pottery which was built and run by a young Dutchman Christian Willhelm in 1618 and located roughly where City Hall stands today.

Visitors to the area are now greeted by this modern impressive entrance to compliment it’s interesting past.

What Our Clients Say

As Trustees we wish to record our thanks for the excellent work undertaken by your company. The quality of the workmanship has transformed the street scene, returning it once again to its pre-First World War character. We hope that your team found this project rewarding alongside the works on the famous London squares which first drew our attention to your firm's capabilities.

Geoffrey Marchant, one of the Trustees of the Leighton Buzzard United and Almshouses Charities.

The results have been superb. The quality of work has been excellent; all specifications have been met fully, and the finish is of an exceptionally high standard, both in the stone footings and the ironwork, the Square having been transformed to its former glory. It has also been a pleasure dealing with David Sugarman and his team – they have been helpful and courteous at all times, and have listened to feedback and acted on it in a professional manner and with a positive spirit.

NIGEL HUGHES, THE ESTATE SURVEYOR THE GROSVENOR ESTATE

I have successfully worked with Metalcraft on two recently completed projects in Sussex Gardens, London W2 where there was a combination of hard and soft landscaping works together with the introduction of metal railings around the private garden areas. I have generally been impressed by the quality of Metalcraft’s work and have found them to be both professional and personable in their approach and proactive in dealing with any challenges that arise. I hope to work with them on other projects in the future
