A rural country setting seems an unlikely place to see Balustrade railings.....or at least the remnants of them. The builders of this beautifully graceful arch decided to top it off in style. Unfortunately, what they didn't expect was for vandals to steal and destroy most of the decoration over the years. What was once an ornate span from top to bottom, now must be seen from below to appreciate. This arch is still in amazing shape.....if only we could make it whole again!
