Donkeywell Forge was commissioned to make a set of 4 traditional estate style, pedestrian gates for a private client’s garden, one for their tennis court, two for their allotment and one near the entrance of the house. All the gates had to have the same resembling design characteristics. The client had a gate on the property that they wanted to use as reference. We worked closely with the client and produced digital renders of the gates in situ for their consideration. We forged and shaped the steel of the gates, making the latches, drop bolts and curved tops by hand. The gates were then finished in a patinated zinc coating to give the appearance of aged lead which would match ironwork we had made for the property previously.
