More Charleston Fences

I have only a few more fences from Charleston, SC - these were both found surrounding churches. The first one was outside the Huegenot Church.  I only wish I had been able to get more of the fence, but we were in a carriage, so there was not a lot of room to get good shots!



This one was outside St. Philips Episcopal.  Another beautiful church, and surrounding fence.

 Interesting thought...those spiky things on top of those fences...not exactly inviting, do you think?

Linking to Friday's Fences.

You're right about the top spikes on that fence....hmmm. Interesting!
Have a good day!

And what beautiful architecture for that first church--especially the vestibule arch. It's hard to find any ugly architecture in Charleston, isn't it?

I think those spikes do a good job in keeping unwanted visitors out! I love Charleston SC...a very charming city!

They are pretty fences, but what catches my eye is the entry to the church. I would love to have a better view of it.

Glad they left the gate open to welcome you in. Beautiful church entrance.

Nobody does iron fences like Charleston! :)
The first one is very ornate.
The finials on the last one do look very pointed. They look like little spears!
Great finds Linda!

Would be interesting to know why they had such forbidding fences. Some of these old buildings are awesome. Thanks for showing them to us.

Really beautiful iron fences!

I agree.....the spikey topped fences look cold and threatening compared to the inviting warmth of the church doors. Interesting combination of textures/feelings indeed!

These beautiful fences just never go out of style!

The first fence is gorgeous and so is the arched entry and wood door. I think they look pretty spikey and could be owiiiieeeee. They are very decorative and formal though.
