Who are Hand Made Places?

Hand Made Places is one of the UK’s leading timber playground equipment suppliers. Based in North Staffordshire, we design, manufacture and install a wide range of active, imaginary and sensory play products.

From schools to community parks, holiday sites to shopping centres, we create inclusive play experiences to remember.

Our range has been crafted to offer valuable learning opportunities as well as lots of fun for exceptional play value. All of our products are designed to captivate children’s imaginations and nurture their social and physical development.

High quality commercial playground equipment

Hand Made Places manufactures all playground equipment to order at a purpose-built timber workshop.

While we are committed to developing innovative products which challenge and excite young people, our focus is firmly on quality. Long-lasting and durable, all of our equipment aims to improve the health and wellbeing of children and is built to the highest standards.

This applies to everything from our product design service right through to the installation and playground surfacing.

A complete outdoor play area provider

As part of the Broxap group of companies, Hand Made Places also offers unrivalled expertise in the design, manufacture and installation of a wide range of street furniture; shelters, canopies and walkways, and sport and outdoor fitness equipment.

We aim to form single source supply partnerships with our clients to provide the very best choice and value when it comes to creating an outdoor playground full of adventure. And as a member of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) and the Association of Play Industries (API), our customers can be sure they are dealing with a reliable and reputable play company.

Customer service at the heart of our organisation

We work hard to uphold a friendly, personal service.

The process starts with you; why not browse our recent projects, or view our product range and build a quote bag? Then, as soon as you contact one of our expert advisers, your playground project begins.

Our team of consultants are on hand to offer inspiration and free advice whilst we work together on your new venture. We encourage you to make the most of this service by booking a free site visit or virtual consultation. Furthermore, we use installation teams with hundreds of years of cumulative experience.

However, the expert knowledge at Hand Made Places isn’t limited to the people you’ll meet along your ‘hand made’ journey. Every step of the design and creation process is led by exceptional professionals. That’s why our clients know that the playground equipment we produce is guaranteed to be durable and compliant.
