This elegant wrought iron gate was designed to fit in a stone arch. As with many of our gates, it doesn't use a conventional frame, instead its structure comes from within the gate. This gives the design a more refined and graceful look
The stylised organic detailing was made by forging the steel whilst hot. At high temperatures the metal is very malleable and can be readily shaped into the hand forged leaves and buds seen in the gate. The lower row of buds were designed to make the gates "rabbit proof".
The gate's tactile latch was also hand forged. This is the first point of contact with our metalwork and it should both look and feel special.
