About us

Welcome to the website of Otter Wrought Iron Products - we are leading designers and manufacturers of weathervanes in the UK. We are based on the Essex/Suffolk border, in the market town of Halstead where the business was founded in  1976 by a Mr Norman Massey. 

We currently have over 1200 exclusive designs which we use for weathervanes, house signs. We make our weathervanes in three sizes to cater for everything from a garden shed to a two storey house - and we will custom-make larger sizes for churches and mansions.

This is a very comprehensive site - we have tried to cover everything you need to know, which includes designs, sizes, fixings, prices, optional extras, material specifications, finishes. We believe we give much more information about our product than any of our competitors, but if all that results in "information overload" then please make contact using our contact us button at the top of the page.

Any weathervane can be hand coloured by our artist- painting costs vary according to the complexity and degree of accuracy required. If a design is not illustrated as a painted version, that means we haven’t done it yet - but please enquire for a cost.
