Ironart for Ashford Homes, Holburne Place, Bath

We are nearing completion of a sizeable commission for our client Ashford Homes in Bath. Ashford Homes are building a prestigious terrace of new town houses in the centre of Bath on Henrietta Street. Follow THIS LINK to their website.

The whole team here at Ironart have been involved with this project which was needed on a really short lead time. We made eight wrought iron balconettes with lead cast detailing in the style of Herschel House, the neighbouring property, automated gates and a 40m run of individually leaded-in Bath finial railings to the front and the side of the building which are as yet unpainted. (Ironart made all the architectural metalwork for Herschel House in 2008).

In the workshop today…18th July

Just a few snaps of the team hard at work in the intense heat we’ve been experiencing. Martin and Paul are pictured putting the finishing touches to the renewed leadwork detail on a pair of beautiful balconettes which we have been commissioned to restore for a listed property in Bath. Interestingly although they look very similar the two balconnettes are not identical – and one is older than the other.
