VICTORIAN FOUNDRY

“paying homage to the foundry and its history we have implemented lots of wonderful weathering steel in strong geometric wedges, someone said 'its a bit rusty' we hope you like it, its a rich and developing patina that gets warmer in colour with age and works contextually with the original use of the building."

Here we have designed a garden for a victorian foundry in Great Walsingham in North Norfolk converted into holiday cottages in the last decade. The foundry was originally founded in 1809, making iron castings for the farming industry. War casualties ended the male line and so in 1918 it was sold to the Wright family and they continued to trade until 1932, but the depression caused its closure. In 1938 it was purchased by the Barnhams who made agricultural implements, pumps, fireballs, backplates, stokers, grates and ornamental fire baskets............ and so we have paid homage to the foundry and its history and implemented lots of wonderful weathering steel. The planting palette inlcudes large leafy hostas, ferns, grasses, hydrangeas and a mix of purple, yellow and a sprinkling of orange perennials
