promised Lesnes Abbey entrance gate looks appropriate for a 12th century site
but a scaffold pole fence doesn’t.
Presumably the cost and the opportunity for vandalism played a part in the decision to take the ugly route but then what sort of fence would not have been an eyesore? Difficult; the vandals and illegal motorbike riders have a lot to answer for.
Maybe the wood is pre-treated against decay but appearances suggest it is just sawn timber sunk into the ground.
