Introducing the Gothic Arched gates

We’re extremely pleased to announce the latest addition to our unique range of wooden pedestrian gates; the Gothic Arched pedestrian gate. This is lovingly manufactured to the same high standards you’ve come to expect from a Gate Expectations gate and is sure not to disappoint even the most discerning of customers.

The Gothic arched gate is based on our usual solid through wedged morticed and tenon jointed frame for strength and durability and like all of our products, is a made to measure gate in both height and width. This new design is based on a equilateral arch and would look just right on any home or castle! We’re sure you’ll love this new design, even if you’ve never read or seen a Gothic tale in your life!

If you would like to find out more information or view some more of our stunning gate pictures, please see our main website Gothic Arched gate. If you’re certain that this is the gate for you, please contact us direct for a full personalised costing to suit your requirements.
