Who we are

Based just on the edge of the South Downs National Park in the heart of Hampshire, Hand Made Places has seen huge growth since its inception in 2000. We started life in a garage with one man designing, making and building everything almost single handedly. Our Hand Made home now is a 30,000 sq ft building that contains our traditional yet modern workshop and offices. Hand Made Places is a division of Broxap Ltd, enabling us to provide a one-stop solution for not only playground equipment but also street furniture, shelters and sports equipment.

We may have come a long way from our humble beginnings but we have maintained our ethos for friendly, personal service and high quality products with a handmade finish. Our range has grown very organically over the years, many of our products began life as bespoke or 'one offs'. Sometimes an idea may come from a teachers sketch; their vision of their desired playground, or a drawing that a child may have done as part of a dream playground project. Wherever the inspiration may come from, our talented designers are constantly seeking out inspiration for ideas to captivate children's imaginations and nurture their social and physical development.

Having firmly established ourselves as a trusted supplier to schools, nurseries and children’s centres all over the UK we have also worked with many town and parish councils and national attractions.

Our team of consultants have over 35 years experience between them and are on hand to offer inspiration and free advice while you're planning your outdoor development. To take advantage of our free design service please contact one of our friendly team to arrange a consultation and begin your journey with us.
