Tell him it was his choice to replace the fence with no discussion or agreement from you to contribute. So you won't be paying.

I would write him a letter saying that you stated that you might be willing to contribute when you could afford it.
Say that unfortunately, as he failed to discuss costs and fence types with you, and has selected something you would not have chosen, then you are not willing to contribute to this particular fence, but should he wish to change the style and get some quotes, then you might be interested in contributing.
Is it an ugly fence???

My question is, where do I stand legally?
I appreciate it’s between both our gardens and I’ve never said I don’t want to contribute, but he is obviously disappointed that I can’t afford it and has now taken to messaging my works Facebook page asking about what we do when people don’t pay money they owe.
Technically, I don’t feel I ‘owe’ them anything as any contribution would be wholly voluntary, but if they are going to cause problems for me at work, I’m going to be less inclined to give them anything and it’s going to cause issues down the line I feel.

Not really correct. The OP offered to contribute, but didn't specify how much or when. They then received a request for £368, which the neighbour deemed to be their share of the cost.
