VICTORIAN FOUNDRY

We have designed a garden for an old victorian foundry in Walsingham in North Norfolk converted into holiday cottages in the last decade. The foundry originally founded in 1809, made iron castings for the local 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, when the depression caused its closure.

In 1938 it was purchased by the Barnhams who made agricultural implements, pumps, firebowls, backplates, stokers, grates and ornamental fire baskets............and so we have paid homage to the old foundry and its history implementing lots of wonderful weathering ('It's all a bit rusty' to quote a neighbour) Corten steel elements, including the path, gate and raised feature planters. our planting palette inlcudes large leafy hostas, ferns, grasses, hydrangeas and a mix of purple and yellow with a sprinkling of orange perennials
