Gate (section)
Add to album

This section of wrought ironwork was part of the design for the gates at Carlisle Cathedral. It was made by the Edinburgh ironworks firm of Thomas Hadden and dates from around 1930.

The scrolled section is painted matt black.

In the late 19th and early 20th century, Scottish firms such as Haddens underwent a revival due to increasing interest in Scottish styles and workmanship of wrought iron. This tradition had declined earlier in the 19th century due to mass production of cheaper cast iron.
