Opening Ceremony for Windsor Coronation Arch Project

The Opening Ceremony for the Coronation Arches took place on Saturday at the end of the Long Walk in Windsor to mark 60 years since the Queen’s coronation.

The spectacular design features six 9m span arches with 4.5m high crown. The steel structure is hidden by willow, woven into the steel skeleton.

The design was constrained by the fact that the arches were not permitted to have substantial foundations – screw piles were specified so they caused minimal disruption and could be easily removed when the arches are taken down.
