Camellia Walk

Key to establishing a sense of original place in heritage restoration projects is the commitment to traditional craftsmanship when recreating lost assets. Camellia Walk was a 60 metre long covered and glazed walkway and a focal point of the formal gardens at Worth Park built in the late 1880's. Using historic photographs from Country Life and remains in situ, Allen Scott painstakingly worked out the original form, dimensions and materials including the complex roof structures. Following this we developed a detailed approach with Green Oak Carpentry who used their expertise to recreate the structure as faithfully as possible with era appropriate joinery including joints being formed as draw-bored mortise and tenons.
