Whitwell Gates & Railings

Although at first sight a medieval house, this property is in fact of the Arts & Crafts period. As the first gates and railings to be installed since the house was built, the concept was that they should at first sight be plain, although not austere, and in keeping with the styles and quality of workmanship of the period. The decorative 'cross' elements has been included as a reference to the history of the house. Cast iron components were used as they an economical way of introducing repetitive complex shapes and introducing mass into the design. The railing uprights, carried through into the gate, are a good example of this ideology with their bulbous base and fluted and tapered cruciform section shank.
