What are Newel Caps?

Newel caps add the finishing touch to a newel post. A newel post is the upright post that supports the staircase bannister. If you have a straight flight of stairs then the newel post and its cap will be the solid upright post at the end of the flight. Newel posts, though, are used at every level of a set of stairs if the stairs move up over several floors or landings.

Essentially a newel post is structural, but being placed at the corner or end of the bannister rail, it followed that they very quickly became an item to decorate. In fact, the picture on the right shows one of the oldest staircases in the UK. The newel post is very sturdy, but to reflect the status and the wealth of this family, the newel has been capped with a wafered rectangular cap, topped and decorated with an incredibly well carved lion carrying a coat of arms on top of the cap!

At Barley Wood I manufacture newel posts and caps by machine and by hand. So, if you would like a newel cap that is as ornate as the combination of cap and lion pictured on the right, I can make it for you!
