Restoration of Gates
In 1933, the entrance gates to this Grade I Listed Herefordshire country house had been removed and stored and had subsequently deteriorated. As part of the project to convert this county house to a company headquarters for Rehau Limited, the entrance gates were restored, with missing sections of ironwork replaced, stone piers and urns repaired and cleaned and the original scheme of gilding recreated.
A motorised opening system was discreetly incorporated with provision made for the first time for access by high vehicles and fire engines. The lime avenue leading to the gates has been thinned and replanted and new driveway lights inserted into the ground, throwing soft light up into the trees.
