Beveridge Park, Kirkcaldy, Fife

It’s well over a year since one of the big red sandstone gateposts at Beveridge Park was demolished by a trailer belonging to a Bulgarian circus which some silly person in the council gave permission to set up in the park. It looked like it was never going to be repaired or replaced and I previously did a blog post on it, hoping to shame someone into action. You can see that post here.

Here’s the photo I took last year.

Anyway, I’m taking absolutely no credit for it but just a week after I posted about it, I saw a stonemason’s van parked at the gates. It looked like someone was being given the job of at least doing a survey on the work required.

And over the last couple of weeks the work has been completed. Hallelujah! The photo below is of the gatepost under construction.

  1. I’m glad you finally got your gate repaired. From the photos, it looks fine. Very impressive.

    • Joan,
      Now we just need actual gates for the gateposts! They were removed during the war, as all our gates and railings were, metal needed for the war effort, but it was all a waste as that sort of metal was no good for war purposes. Sadly, they’ll never be replaced.
