Why it is important to retain heritage and character?

Heritage Fencing

We live in a beautifully historic country full of intricate characterful architecture. You can see this heritage in many forms across the UK such as council buildings, churches, railways and more.

The Victorian era in particular heralded many architectural and landscaping features which we value today. Many products of this time will have been manufactured from cast iron such as railings which became a popular means of enclosing public buildings, gracing church boundaries and proclaiming the property of private land owners and the homes of the well-to-do. Many of these beautifully ornate railings were removed for salvage in the Second World War or allowed to fall into disrepair and some designs will never be seen again.  Many people now want to regain the feel of these heritage pieces to compliment the designs of the buildings around them. Modern alternatives simply do not hold the same character.
