Creating the perfect entrance to our garden

Creating the perfect entrance to our garden

When it came to creating the perfect entrance to our re-styled garden, we knew immediately who we should call on to make our set of gates.

The team at Peter Clutterbuck’s Design Blacksmiths are based just a stones throw from the Queens Hotel and their distinctive work can be seen across the city.

They were responsible for making the bandstand on Southsea seafront and the beautiful statue at Daedalus airfield as well as many other examples of gates and railings across the city and beyond.

Garden designer Lorien Loten, said: “We are so lucky to have Peter and the team on our doorstep and when it came to creating an eye-catching set of gates for the garden, they were number one on our list.

“They were able to interpret exactly what we wanted and turn the drawings into a reality,” she said.

The gate is being fashioned by hand from mild steel and it will take a month to complete the construction.

“Being so close to the Queens Hotel, it was nice to be able to create the gates for the garden. It’s such a lovely design by Nigel Searle and we really enjoy working on projects like this,” said John Duffield, who has been working on the gates with Patrick Mannerings.
