Forth Bridge Size Task

We’ve likened the ongoing painting of the park fencing around Godinton House and Gardens to that of the Forth Bridge. The old park fence was renewed with traditional iron railings in 1999 and now is in need of painting, especially under the lime trees where the sticky sap corrodes the paint very quickly.

Nick Sandford, Estate Manager, read about the new style of paint used on the Forth Bridge, where you mix a special hardening agent that sets the paint onto the metal. Hopefully, this will mean the fence will not need attention for many years.
