17 December - Ugly or what?

Gate GateThe promised Lesnes Abbey entrance gate looks appropriate for a 12th century site but a scaffold pole fence doesn’t.

Presumably the cost and the opportunity for vandalism played a part in the decision to take the ugly route but then what sort of fence would not have been an eyesore? Difficult; the vandals and illegal motorbike riders have a lot to answer for.

Maybe the wood is pre-treated against decay but appearances suggest it is just sawn timber sunk into the ground.
