Middleton Arch - Royal Avenue Gardens

Dear Members,

 You may recall that in 1992 the Old Darts, along with the Middleton family, replaced the archway leading into the Royal Avenue gardens, which had been previously scrapped when the gardens were redesigned by the South Hams District Council. Well time has taken its toll, and the arch now in need of some TLC.
Members have been giving this project some thought and have priced up the idea and come up with some fixed price quotations for the work.

Royal Avenue Gardensb Oct 2018Disassembling, and taking down the arch, to be undertaken by members.

Shot blasting and hot zinc spay, and spray with two pack primer, (all to be done off site by contractors)

Members to reassemble, and paint in its original colour, with two part paint.


The price for this work including transport is £9,125.

Members met on Thursday April 25th at the Rowing Club, and talked over the idea, updates on this project will be posted as they become available.

It is again a lot of money which needs thoughtful consideration, we can pay from funds, or maybe start an appeal?


Its your association, what do you think? If you were unable to attend the meeting, then please contact the secretary via email with your thoughts.
