These rakes are made by Rudd’s rakes in Cumbria, the last commercial rake makers in Britain.
The Rudd family have been making their rakes for over 100 years, all their rakes are hand made and finished in their small workshop in in Dufton, near Appleby. Their rakes are made with an ash handle and head plus a steam bent bow for strength. The pegs are made from silver birch. To see a video about Rudd's rake making see https://vimeo.com/4231211
