Good Directions - Camel 3D Weathervane
Camel 3D Weathervane
Good Directions recently had the pleasure to manufacture a bespoke copper 3D weathervane as a retirement gift to one of our customers living overseas.
This copper weathervane was replicated from a pre-existing design of a weathervane and turned into a new and exciting product. We cut two camels out of copper sheet on our waterjet cutter, which were shaped and dressed with care and precision using a hammer and sandbags to individually form each half. These halves were then formed and structured around the support tubes on the inside of the camel to allow the weathervane to stand and rotate freely. Afterwards, they were soldered together to complete the 3D camel. The finishing touch of this weathervane came in the form of treating the copper to create a burnished patina, to give a beautiful weathered bronze effect allowing it to proudly stand out against the sky on the customers roof.
At Good Directions we take pride in all our work and no ask is too big or too small, we will always do everything we can to make dreams become a reality. Our talented and friendly staff are always happy to help. For a further product range and a full list of services, please visit our website to see

Good Directions - Malaysia Guttering Project
Malaysia Guttering Project
This was a recent project that we undertook in which we produced copper guttering to be installed on a customer’s house in Malaysia. The guttering in question was our standard half round and featured a mixture of guttering, downpipes, bends, and hopper heads.
The hoppers which were produced for this build were our Margaret hoppers, attached to our 80mm diameter downpipes and our standard half round guttering. A massive installation in an exotic part of the world, which the customer provided the drawings for us to work to, not only for his summer home but also his pet tiger’s house.
The customer specifically chose us to produce and provide the guttering for him after contacting various other guttering companies around the world and shopping around for the best possible option. We subsequently invited the customer to come and tour our factory and witness first-hand his order being manufactured, which our customer was over-joyed at. Being able to visit the factory and getting our expert opinions on our guttering and the installation process put the customer at ease and assured him that he was getting high quality, UK manufactured guttering to proudly display on his house and that would last for many years to come.
Established in 1988, Good Directions Ltd is one of the UK’s largest manufacturers of architectural features including external clocks, roof turrets, clock towers, weathervanes, copper guttering and street furniture.
