Garden railings

Something we never see, that old rumour of them all being removed during the war (now about 3 wars ago) but these came, apparently from the old Stobhill hospital and we have about 127 feet of them. There is the odd bit thats bent, but the metal itself is in pretty good shape without too much rusting at the bases of the verticals. However. in the rush to remove them they have been cut off the wall, so there would once have been a little detail below the bottom rail which would have been leaded into the wall, but these have gone. This means that in order to re-fit them you would have to add spars every few feet and sink these into the wall but if you look at any modern railings that are fitted, this is how they do it anyway, it seems to involve less drilling into stonework.
I forgot to mention the other slight issue, they are all slightly at an angle, not much and I reckon you could pretty much live with it, but if you look at the last image, I've put one length back to front with another so that you can see the different angles. Like I say, its not much, and its only the second batch of railings we've had in 15 years!
