These gates with gothic styling reflect the ecclesiastical nature of their location
These gates with gothic styling reflect the ecclesiastical nature of their location
Working with Groundwork Lincolnshire, we designed these simple gates to reflect the ecclesiastical history of the site, whilst ensuring that they still have a fairly contemporary overall look.  The precise geometry of the design, however, meant that realising the gates' apparent simplicity required an extremely high level of accuracy and technical skill from our team of blacksmiths. 
 
The gothic arch motif is picked up in the cast panels which feature interpretations of drawings done by children from the local primary school of their understanding of monastic life at the abbey.
