The restoration of North Watford Cemetery’s iron gates has been completed by Watford Borough Council, with Watford’s Elected Mayor Peter Taylor reopening the gates on July 8.

The work is part of ongoing improvements to the 88-year-old cemetery – including the new lodge extension and landscaping of the grounds which have been awarded national Green Flag status.

Award winning heritage restorers, Lost Art, who were responsible for restoring the iconic Edwardian bandstand in Cassiobury Park, carried out the work. 

Extensive corrosion to the metal work and damage caused by years of weathering has been repaired and new paint applied to restore the gates to their former glory.

Elected Mayor of Watford Peter Taylor said: “I’m really pleased that we have been able to properly restore the gates to the 88-year-old North Watford Cemetery. 

“The work is part of ongoing improvements cemetery, including the new lodge extension and landscaping of the grounds which have been awarded national Green Flag status. Preserving our heritage is really important and the new gates look fantastic!”
