Victorian Cast Iron Gate Restoration & Matching Railing Panel Installation In Somerset

Mr D in Somerset invited us to restore his original Victorian cast iron gate. Alongside the restoration we created a bespoke matching panel from solid iron bar and cast iron finials.

Solid Iron Victorian Style Railings Installed By Blake & Bull SOUTH WEST FABRICTORS UKI love the original gate. The heart emblem in the centre reminds me of Welsh love spoons. The iron bar symbolising the union of two sides maybe? The more that I look, I wonder if this was put in as part of a new marriage union? It is such a joy to work with old metal work, this gate is embossed with the makers mark to the rear.

We then chose a satin powder coat finish for the top coat, and this is more akin to a traditional paint finish. {further information}

Subtle rivet details finish the top of the rail section off, adding a solidity and victorian industrial aesthetic.
