Unique Designs of Chinese Pagoda/Pavillion (Ting) and Gazebos.
All of our work is hand made in our work-shops in Shropshire.

Below are some examples of our work.

We are very happy to quote on any design of garden structure,
so if you have somthing in mind, however strange, then please let us know.

     
 

In 2005 I was fortunate enough to be able to spend a month travelling around China.
I loved every minute of it, travelling by sleeper train we slowly made our way from Beijing to Xian then to Chengdu, stopping off at many places along the way.

I have been practicing kung-fu for twelve years and had always dreamt of visiting the famous Shaolin Temple at Song Shan.

It seemed that every time we went for a walk weather it be up a sacred mountain or in a small park in a non-descript industrial city, we came across many small garden pavillions (Ting) which were a perfect place to relax and shelter from the intense summer heat.

     

I quickly became obsessed by these small buildings, taking a picture of each one we came across. They would appear, out of the blue, in the most unlikly places. I knew that a pagoda like this would make the most amazing garden feature. So I resolved that when I got back I would set about creating my own pagoda.

The picture above shows the result.

I returned to China in 2007 for a three month trip and spent some time looking at the famous gardens in Suzhou and Tongli and Shanghai. I also travelled around Haungshan mountains, Wuyuan, Wudang shan, Beijing, Hong Kong, Nanjing and many other places in China. I have taken many pictures of the Gardens and the buildings within them, some are fantastic and some are not.


Feel Free to have a look.

 

The Pagoda has a steel structure and frame-work with galvanised steel tiles. The seats are made of Oak.

The Dragon features are Gilded.

The price for the Pagoda is 7950

I may be persuaded to deliver and fit it for no extra charge, but only if you were to live in England, Scotland or Wales and provide a brick or concrete base to put it on plus tea and cake.

Vanessa is not included.

   

Sides are available for the pagoda
which can be removed when required.

 

This pagoda/pavillion could be the centrepiece of any new garden design.


The whole structure can be assembled and disassembled very easily and transported in 'kit' form.
It takes me a day to build it up and half a day to take it down again! It weighs in at about a 1000 Kg.
I have even shipped one to the USA!

 

The finished Pagoda, with gilded dragons and galvanised roof tiles.

   

   

There is enough room to seat six people comfortably. The seats are made of oak. You could have two open sides with two bench seats, three open sides with one seat, or no seats at all with just the four collumns. The choice is yours. You could have the seats facing out with a fish pond in the middle!

   

   

Gilded Dragons.

   

This is the Pagoda that I based my design on.
We came across this one while walking in the hills near Dafo not far from a huge seated Buddha.
