Wrought iron handrails for St Cyriac’s Church, Lacock

Jim has been working on another heritage metalwork project, this time for St Cyriac’s Church in Lacock. Ironart has been commissioned to make two new handrails to match in with the existing historic wrought iron handrails at this pretty village church. Jim has been working hard on the forge to carefully match the profile of the tapered, convex open scrolls, and to fuller the unusual detail on the uprights so that they blend seamlessly with the originals. St Cyriac’s Church in Lacock, Wiltshire dates mainly from the fifteenth century and was restored during the Victorian era. Lacock is a beautiful village, and the church is well worth a visit for the elaborately painted ceiling in The Lady Chapel.
