It all started back in the 60’s when Peter Wolfenden, came up with the idea of obtaining a sheet of polythene and putting eyelets in each corner. He used the sheet to cover stacked bales of hay to stop them being ruined by the rain before the farmers could get them indoors.

The next development was to stretch this polythene (which in those early days was a very new and rare material) over steel hoops. These were among some of the very first polytunnels. Over the years we designed and developed structures and eventually we became Northern Polytunnels

Fast forward to the present day…
