Hinchley Wood Gates

Hinchley Wood gates in the 1930s.

The bespoke gates at the College of Estate Management’s premises at Hinchley Woods, Surrey, provided an impressive entrance to the 34 acre site.

However, during the Second World War, metal was donated to the war effort: from housewives’ pots and pans… to College gates.

The College’s coat of arms and motto was preserved, but the rest of the gate was melted down.

The College’s coat of arms and motto are all that remain of the Hinchley Wood gates.
