Welcome to Heartwood Crafts

We are a family owned and run business based on the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire b​order, a few miles from the centre of Sherwood Forest and at the foothills of the Peak District. All our designs are inspired by the history, geography and traditions around us. Each creation is unique and hand crafted.

Lychgate

Now Completed!

Lychgates were once the resting place of a coffin awaiting burial (lych means 'body'). These days, it has more to do with the photo opportunities available for weddings and christenings! I've seen many lychgates around the Peak District and this one is a composite of them along with raised gardens. It is built upon a natural stone base with a footprint of 90cm x 60cm (36 in x 24in) and stands approx. 42cm (17in) tall. The other materials used are locally sourced Mandale limestone (which contains 300 million year old crinoid and bi-valve fossils), Amazone grey and beige limestone, oak, mild steel, copper and lead.

What our customers are saying

As a time-served tradesman, (I can see that) the skill that has gone into this is immense, clearly a labour of love. I tip my hat to you sir!

I keep coming back to this to look at it. The level of skill in this model is comparable, if not better, than professional animation studios. Incredible detail!
