The Gate Place  (Southport)

Welcome to The Gate Place

“The Gate Place” was established in 1969 by George and Lilian Thierens to create and manufacture custom made gates and decorative ironwork.

For more than 40 years our reputation for quality and craftsmanship has been consildated by constantly developing new ideas and being open to change.

Along with son Richard (who is a fully qualified automation engineer and ironsmith) we are continually forging ahead and remain one of the leading gate companies in the Northwest.

We pride ourselves on researching new ideas and fresh product ranges to cater for our continually growing range of clients throughout the Northwest.

The values that George instilled in “The Gate Place” some 40 years ago are still clearly visible throughout the business. From initial consultation to after care service you will always receive the same Quality, unbiased advice that you’d expect from a long running family business.

Probably the largest selection of wrought iron gates, railings and balconies etc…

with 1000’s of designs and styles to choose from, “The Gate Place” always has something to fit your taste and budget.

Because we started out on a family run business, we still hold a lot of our original values close to our hearts.

Our original showroom and still the location of “The Gate Place” workshops and offices.

We have a wide variety of traditional gates, driveways gates, single gates and various automation solutions available for demonstration on this site.
