Sunray gate, Costons Lane

Another Art Deco survivor. In the 1920s and 1930s metal tubing was regarded as a versatile and exciting medium, it turns up everywhere in Art Deco design, from furniture to garden gates like this one. The path that can be seen through the rays may also date from the same period as “crazy paving” or the moulded equivalent was very popular at the time.
