Bow top metal railings installed within Lake District National Park

Bow top metal railings manufactured by Alpha Rail have been installed within ‘The Glebe’ - a popular destination in the world-renowned Lake District National Park.

The Glebe is a large recreational area, located south-west of Bowness-on-Windermere town centre and forms part of the town’s main tourist attraction. The recreational area comprises tennis courts, a pitch and putt, a picnic area and a number of commercial properties.

The Lake District National Park Authority (LDNPA) had identified The Glebe as a strategic regeneration location and wanted to develop the area as a world class visitor destination.

Research had found that moving vehicles and parked cars were significantly detracting the visitor experience. Therefore, a key objective of the improvement scheme was to make the area safer for pedestrians and cyclists.

Alpha Rail was contracted to manufacture and install bow top metal railings, vertical bar railings and metal gates to a number of locations within The Glebe as part of the plan to create a safer, more pedestrianised focused environment.

Phil Ball, Sales Director at Alpha Rail commented, “We were proud to play our part in a project where our metalwork products have contributed towards increasing the pedestrianised areas of such a busy tourist destination. We ensured the metal railings met the technical specification perfectly and were installed on time as promised.”
