about us

Based in St. Agnes, Cornwall, Jay’s Gates is a third-generation family-run business. At our workshop, we create gates, handrails, railings, stainless steel and glass balustrades, wrought ironwork, Juliette balconies, and stairs.

We are a small family firm that was founded in the 1960s by John Turner. His son Steve Turner carried on the family business during the 1990s, and now his sons Nick & Mathew Turner have taken over.

Our outstanding reputation of supplying high quality British-made gates is reflected in our customer reviews, repeat customers and word of mouth recommendations.

Some Of Our

Satisfied Clients

"Mathew and Nick made a beautiful garden arch from a similar arch photograph I supplied. It is perfect for what I wanted and exactly what I requested. It is substantially made and galvanised. They were easy to contact and patient, as I changed my measurements several times, also charged a very fair price for what must of been alot of work. They also delivered the item so I would highly recommend them."

Alex Ottaway

"An incredible local Cornish company. I wanted an internal metal staircase for an attic conversion. Mathew visited the site and measured up the area and created a drawing for me, advising what would be best in the space. We agreed on a price and the spec and colour. I am so pleased with the result!! The quality, detail and craftsmanship is incredible. He has painstaking delivered a beautiful piece of work, and charged me the agreed price, even though, with


"Very positive experience from initial inquiry throughout the process to final installation. Lovely galvanised railings at a reasonable price. Everyone spoken to or met was highly personable and very helpful. 5* company."
