A Grate rescue

Last week , on Sunday 25th May, a fire grate was discovered in the backyard of  seagull House. This house has been around for centuries, it was first owned by a Tudor lady called Ann Wilson.

The fire grate is believed to have come from tudor times and is rare and valuable. It was rescued by Jane Smith the current owner, while digging up potatoes. 

jane said  " I was very surprised while digging up my potatoes, to find a metal object which turned out to be a rare fire grate from Tudor time"

The plan is now to display the grate in Bristol museum. Tony Corothers, owner of the museum said. " I am delighted to be able to display this very rare and beautiful fire grate to the people of  Bristol."

It is hoped that people enjoy this different and wonderful rescued fire grate
