Broodmare Fencing.

Broodmare Fencing.

This was the style of fencing that was errected at the Gardeners and Moor Hall paddocks for the Cliveden Stud broodmares and their foals. With one exception that it was a double fence with a hawthorn hedge planted in between to act as a windbreak and shelter. Moor Hall paddocks had an open wood and corrugated iron shelters as well if it should rain.

The wood rail fences were taken down in 1945 and the wood use for other construction around the farm and was replaced with a barbwire and post construction.
