Chilstone create beautiful garden ornaments, from fountains to statues and planters. Each piece is hand crafted and increases in value as it weathers. They also make bespoke items to order for gardens and house building as well as restoration projects.

Why Chilstone wanted to join the Herd...
"We had a request to help with a then secret campaign that the Hospice in the Weald were planning. The Hospice team wanted us to make a number of simple plinths to display a whole herd of horses statues, decorated by artist and designers and scattered around Kent and Sussex to raise awareness and funds for the Hospice in the Weald. Of course we couldn't wait! We wanted to produce a simple, cost effective, durable plinth that was elegant, but supported the statues, without distracting from the artwork, suitable for a range of locations. We reduced the thickness of the cast stone plinth so that it could be more easily transported."
