NS1385 : The Golden Gates at Benmore Gardens

taken 14 years ago, near to Benmore, Argyll And Bute, Great Britain

The Golden Gates at Benmore Gardens
The Golden Gates at Benmore Gardens
Located at the Glen Massan entrance to Benmore Gardens, the gates, not present at this time, bore the initials "JD", referring to a Mr James Duncan, who was an owner of Benmore House and who planted many trees here. The gate posts lie at the southern edge of Benmore Gardens; the boundary fence can be seen just beyond them.

Compare NS1385 : The Golden Gates at Benmore Gardens, taken eight years later, with the gates themselves present and restored to splendour; for the restoration that took place in the intervening years, see NS1385 : The Golden Gates at Benmore Gardens.
