St Helen’s Church, West Auckland

Bespoke New Doors 

 ASH02-Photo afterThe installation of custom made new doors to the main entrance of St Helen’s Church, West Auckland starts this week. The new doors are oak framed glazed double doors incorporating bush hammered stainless steel rails with bespoke handles and inscriptions in latin. The design also incorporates metal details reclaimed from the existing gates depicting nails, a hammer and a cross which are to be finished with new gilding. The project has involved several skilled local craftsmen including a joiner, blacksmith and stonemason. The new doors will make the entrance porch more secure and draught free as well as providing a more welcoming approach to the church.
