The gates at the entrance to the West Street Cemetery in Farnham are thought to be contemporary to the creation of the cemetery in the Victorian period. The entrance to the cemetery including the gates and pillars is grade 2 listed and of local interest. The gates are owned by Farnham Town Council who are seeking the renovation of the gates to good working order. Weighing approximately 800Kg, the gates have been dismounted from their pillars and sympathetically blast cleaned. An assessment has been carried out of the physical status of the structure and decoration of the gates. They consist of traditionally forged, fixed and joined wrought iron frames with cast iron infill decoration with leading between the cast and wrought and are showing significant corrosion and impact damage. A detailed specification is contained in the attached document "Briefing document for invitation to tender in respect of the Renovation of the Entrance Gates to West Street Cemetery, Farnham, Surrey GU9 7AP"
