About Us

The story so far

In 1982, John Bright Fencing was founded by husband and wife John and Bridget Bright. Daughter Beth was welcomed into the family business later in 2003.

Initially, fencing was the main focus but as the company grew, larger premises were purchased at Salway Ash, Bridport and the country store opened in 1994.

Today, the Salway Ash site has a country store, workshop and acts as a base for our Dorset fencing teams.

Experienced teams install industrial, agricultural, domestic and garden fencing using post and rail, stock, close-board or parkland from a range of materials.

Craftsmen use wood and metal to create gates, doors, dog kennels and poultry houses in the extensive on site workshop. Bespoke designs can also be built to your specification.

You’ll find everything you need at the country store, from a good pair of wellington boots to a well built rabbit hutch, and really great service. Well worth a visit.
