Coronation Arch Box 1953

The coronation of Queen Elizabeth in 1953 was widely celebrated, not least of all in Box. The Coronation Arch shown here was erected between what was then stables (now garages and ‘Old Stables’ cottage) and the gardens of ‘Box Green House’, near the Village Green. The arch was designed by Edward Payne, a stained glass artist who lived at ‘The Triangle’ in Box for much of his life. Cross Cottages can be seen through the arch.
