I've heard that upside-down story before, but I don't think it's true. They look the right way up to me.

Did you know that apart from that wee lodge they moved, those railings are the only bit of the Palace left?

if you look closely then you will see that there are some leaves on the fence in a pattern, but the leaves are growing down the way - no unless i didnt do biology for 3 years you should know that leaves grow up. the ones on that are just completely the wrong way round

The original point was that they had been put *back on* upside-down. The original black and white photograph proves that this isn't the case.

As for the leaf pattern growing down there are other parts of the design that would look wrong the other way round.

I've heard the rumours before and didnt know what to make of them... I think somebody's grannie/granda made it up just for something to talk about! 8O They seem fine to me

On inspection, it's distinctly heavier in design at the bottom; the first clue. The decorative motifs employed in the casting are quite clearly the right way round: The trefoil frieze along the top are 1 above 2, the five-petalled rose forms a pentagram, next are the bell flower garlands (which do look a wee bit like they're upside down... but they're not :wink: ), notice the collar with the volutes scrolling downwards with more bell flowers garlands hanging from them and forming a mouchette around a scallop shell.

Case closed methinks ::): :D ::): :D ::):
