Victoria Park Gates

By Glostopcat  
One of the entrances to Royal Victoria Park in Bath, these gates are not the original Victorian ones. The original iron ones were removed and used during the Second World War and these replaced them sometime after the war had ended and the park was restored to its former glory. The archway and tree are the same ones that were featured in the upload entitled "Autumn Walkers" two days ago.

The portrait format works well with so many verticals here, Ed: it's a superb tree as a backdrop for the gates.

Vibrant colour in that wonderful tree. Great composition. Whoever made those replacement gates made a fine job of them.

I recognized the tree before reading your description Ed, it has an unmistakeable majesty. As to Kate's remark, unfortunately most of the gates, railings, etc., that were removed, were never used during the war, at least that's what I read much later, a real shame and disgrace!
