St Peter’s Gates

Artathon 6 of 47: St Peter’s Gates

St Peter's Gates

St Peters Gates (the left hand gate is pictured here) were commissioned by the Ipswich Hospital Band who, with the aid of Lottery Funding in 2006, converted the former St Peter’s Church into a centre for Music and the Arts. They have been fashioned from steel by the artist Paul Richardson who was responsible for a much more prominent sculpture for the town in the shape of ‘The Major’. But more on that later in the series.
