a commemorative gate

Today I finished a commemorative oak gate installed at Epwell near Banbury. It has been a long project involving several craftspeople, a woodcarver, a blacksmith and my mate Andy who did the joinery on the gate. I was delighted with the finished project as was Alice who commissioned it.

This is what it replaced, functional but rather an urban solution and a little soulless.

    This gate is spectacular. SO much nicer than that gate it replaced. Oooo I want one!!! Don't have anywhere to put it right now, but I wants it. ;-)Thanks for posting this!
