Australian FlagAdrian Reis, of Westbury Gates in Australia contacted Charltons recently with the following story.

“A young mother, Sarah came into our exhibit – she loved the gates and said they were exactly like the ones her mother in law described from her time farming in Herefordshire – it appears Sarah had married into an English family who sold their UK farms about 10 years ago and moved to Tasmania. Sarah took her Charltons gate home and her mother in law, upon seeing it thought it was fabulous said Sarah should by a second. We delivered that second gate yesterday to their rather substantial farm – when we arrived Sarah then produced a gate brochure that her mother in law had given her – it was 20 years old and her mother in law brought it with her when she moved from the UK to Tasmania – the brochure advertised gates made by A J Charlton!”

It’s great to see the Charlton name travels so far!
