As above, what’s the proper name for these jaw breakers? I can’t find where to buy them. Thanks.

Variously known as New Zealand , New Hampshire, or Taranaki Gate. The illustrated fixture I seem to recall was from Croggon Fencing but think theyve gone. Try READING: 0118 941 1234 John George Ltd-

That's the fanciest Taranaki gate I ever did see.

I thought having a wooden batten to help tweak it tight shut was "flash", but that's a really smart design. What holds the bottom end to the post?

we call them “Cockys Gates” ( a cocky is a small time or busted àrse farmer ) here & they are ALWAYS home made out of a bit of timber, some scrap steel, a repurposed star picket, or anything handy lying around. Have seen some very well engineered ones, but not really something you buy . . .

In the posh end of NSW I was told they were Taranaki gates.

Armidale. I worked for a chap who was descended from an English family one of whom ended up as Prime Minister all the paddocks were named after places on the home estate.

that explains it then 🤣

for the record, Armidale is “just up the road” from here ( although a COMPLETELY different landscape & environment) & I have a lot of history, connections & time spent in that area

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
