The Railings Of Padstow

Documents in time

The Railings. Every town has them. Whether it’s a Guardrail for blocking an area from access or a Handrail designed to provide support, such as on a stairway. Or used as a meeting place by people (I’ll meet you by the railings)

This latest photographic project chronicles significant icons in my geographical and visual survey of the area.
The old and archaic railings of Padstow are slowly being taken away or replaced by up to date Plastic or Aluminum forms.

Once they’re gone, they’re gone
