We can provide railings & gates of all kinds, in wrought iron, cast iron, or steel, from very ornate to very simple, as well as full restoration & conservation of heritage materials (see link below). We have our own pattern making department and foundry as well as fabrication workshops so can provide a design and drawing service by in house architect, and have our own fully employed installation teams. We have worked on numerous high profile sites around the country including those of royal parks, royal palaces, Whitehall departments and cathedrals.
St Leonard’s Church, Shoreditch was modelled in the style of Christopher Wren by George Dance the Elder in 1736. The heavy cast iron railings in front of the church which are listed grade 1 are a rare example of early eighteenth century cast iron railings similar to those around St Pauls Cathedral. Nevertheless a section of the railings was removed during the war and had to be replaced with exact replicas.
The Royal Geographical Society
This project involved the replacement of wrought iron railings and gates removed in 1941 for the war effort. The project completed in 1992 and unveiled by Prince Charles required the new railings to be as near to being exact replicas of the originals designed by Norman Shaw and listed grade 11, as was possible using the photographic evidence available.
