Here’s some updated photos of the finished gates at Petworth House.
Conservation and Restoration work was completed on the gates in Summer of 2013. I like to keep an eye on all our Conservation projects, so periodically I revisit each one of them, check them over and take some photos to add to the record.

Back to Petworth House to check over the gates we finished restoring this time last year. Looking good! Never ceases to amaze me how difficult it can be to photograph large ironwork installations….. Hence a picture from last winter. I have to thank the very talented Julian Smith for capturing the gates in thier true glory. #blacksmith
