These  Portland stone gate pillars was a feature in Martin Cook’s ‘A literary Garden’ at Chelsea Flower

Show 2011.  Martin Cook and Bonnie Davies won Silver/Gilt medal for their show garden.

The hand carved poetry on the Portland stone pillars is by Felix Dennis

‘The road is made by walking, abreast or single file. While idlers sit there gawking child, come walk with me awhile.

No miles are made by talking. No map can stride amile. The road is made by walking child. Come walk with me awhile’
