Graveyard ironwork.

An excellent place to search for historic blacksmith made ironworks are old graveyards, one can be lucky enough to stumble over a handmade grave surround amongst the broken factory produced victorian cast iron examples,
This particular piece below is interesting because of unique design and the wrought iron forged horseshoes are tooled and fullered ,this means the iron section was actually forged by the blacksmith, so probably predates the invention of concave fullered steel around the turn of the century.
This example is in kilbride churchyard near oban, you can find more information at the Friends of kilbride
