Antique gates are beautifully decorative – a small gate, left adjar between sections of a garden, will entice visitors to see what’s beyond. Lichen stocks antique iron gates reclaimed from period properties and historic buildings.
Finials are architectural features in their own right, providing ornamentation, typically on the top of gate posts or at the apex of a roof. They can be stone, marble or metal (the latter also acting as lightning rods.) Limestone ball finials are also popular as decorative features either side of steps, or paths.
