Cast Iron Kerbing.
The Victorians used cast iron to good effect even for their paving kerbs.
As well as being strong and weather resistant they were aesthetically pleasing as well.

Flat Cast Iron Kerbing made for Tamworth Borough Council.
Ground Works for the installation of the cast iron Kerbing before the binding sand was laid for the block paviours.
Holding clean and even lines the castellated tops of the Kerbing providing strength and a tidy edge to the old block brick paving and stone cobble gutter.
Once the oxidation has finished the iron will develop a colourful patina like a manhole cover. This oxidation will allow the cast iron to remain in a suitable condition providing good ware for at least 150 years providing modern grits are not used on the roads.
Note: The manufactured Kerbs are flat unlike curved front face originals below.
