  • This is one of two pairs of cast and wrought iron gates that we purchased, they are circa 1908 formerly being the 'Gate A' entranceway to the South Stand at Twickenham rugby ground, the uprights stamped T W PALMER & CO., MERTON, originally painted green. Circa 1908, being the year the South Stand at Twickenham Rugby Ground was built. The gates were removed from situ in 2005 when the South Stand was redeveloped. In 1907 RFU committee member William Williams purchased a 10 ¼ acre market garden in Twickenham for £5,572 12s and 6d. The first stands were constructed the following year. After further expenditure on local roads, Twickenham opened its doors for its first rugby match on 2nd October 1909 when Harlequins played Richmond. The first international hosted at Twickenham was the England v Wales encounter on 15th January 1910. The stadium originally had a maximum capacity of 20,000. The RFU's first redevelopment was in 1921 when a stand was built above the northern terrace. In 1927 the East Stand was extended, and there followed a similar extension to the South Stand. In 1932 a brand new facility, the West Stand, was completed and which also provided the RFU with administrative offices making Twickenham literally the home of rugby since 1937. In 1965 the South Stand was closed due to structural failings. When a new replacement stand was proposed this led to a very extended period of planning difficulties. Finally overcome, the stadium has been magnificently redeveloped since the 1980s. Its present day capacity is 82,000 making it the second biggest stadium in the United Kingdom after Wembley. The present gates offer a wonderful opportunity to acquire a piece of infrastructure associated with the most historic and famous rugby ground in the world.
