Canterbury Cathedral Gates

At Canterbury Cathedral it was all fun and games dealing with high winds whilst fitting these gates. Removed in September, restored and now back from the finishers these gates look stunning. Hats off to Clayson Decorating of Uckfield who carried out all the finishing and guilding. They look superb!!! The restoration process for this was requested to be very thorough, every repair was numbered and photographed before, during and after each repair. Once each repair was complete a report was written explaining the cause for the damage and measures taken to prevent the same cause of damage in the future. These reports and photographs were compiled to make a restoration report for The Church of England which were archived for the gates history along with any harvestable parts and tooling i had made for my restoration so that they could be reused for future restoration.
