Happy 50th Ironart!

June 1967Sgt Pepper had just been released, Aretha Franklin’s Respect was at number one, protests against the Vietnam War were at their height … and as the first cash machine appeared on the streets of London, over in Bath a metal workshop called Ironart opened its doors for business.

Sam Chantry, the original owner, made some of the classic Bath ironwork that you see around you today, including railings, gates and balconies at the likes of the Royal Crescent, the Theatre Royal and further afield at Bowood House.  Our very own Luke worked for Chantry as a teenager and sometimes finds himself revisiting the ironwork he helped to install all those years ago.

 

And 50 years later in June 2017 here will still are, on the same site in Larkhall, doing what we do best – making beautiful bespoke ironwork that will adorn your homes and gardens for another 50 years – at least…

Bath WI garden in Victoria Park, Bath

The local Bath WI group have a community garden in the beautiful Botantical Gardens in Royal Victoria Park, Bath. The garden is entirely made up of edible plants and flowers. Their concept was designed to inspire people to plant edibles that are not only useful, but beautiful as well. We’re delighted that they have chosen an Ironart Lansdown bench to grace their fantastic garden. The Bath WI had a summer garden party last week in the glorious sunshine – at which the bench was much admired and enjoyed. Our thanks to the ladies of the Bath WI for sending through these pics!
