Entrance gates

The final phase of an extensive landscaping scheme required the design and construction of an entrance which was both impressive and sensitive to the location. Consideration was given to a range of aspects including local architectural vernacular and materials, traditional craftsmanship and the unique and protected biodiversity and habitat specific to the property which was designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

Local stone masons used material from derelict walls on site in combination with new stone sourced from the nearby Mountsorrel Quarry. The coping was inspired by the detail on bridges and walls adjacent to the nearby reservoir.

Completed 2015.
