Here’s a garden arch we made earlier (a lot earlier)
AN ARCH WE MADE EARLIER (OVER TWENTY YEARS EARLIER)
When travelling to work, most days of the week I pass two of our standard scrolled arches in a front garden close to the road. They have been there for at least twenty years.
Some time ago, I had been out delivering and was passing that particular house on the way back to the workshop, the lady of the house was in the garden watering some of her plants.
I stopped the van and introduced myself, asked if I could photograph the arches and put the pictures on our website. We discussed the arches, which had been put in the ground after delivery and not touched since. She thought, as I did, they had been there at least sixteen years at that time and they are still going strong over four years later.
