Something new and something old

21st November 2022

Dorothea had the previlage to work on these decorative hand made panels, which are simple in design but showcase the skills of the blacksmith which produced them. The origin of the panels are unknown but we believe they were commisioned for the property and removed for storeage during renovation works. The panels were stored on the premises but not in use or maintained. 

 

The decorative panels were fully restored removing all debris and surface rust with minimal abration whilst ensuring that the surface is correctly prepared before applying a protective paint system. The panels were secured within the extarnl frame without the need for fixings or welding, ensuring that the panel remain in their original condition. The mild steel frame was constructed around the frame as part of our trial work before being blast cleaning and applying a protective paint system. 

Once fully painted the gates were installed on site
