Perimeter walls and railings including entrance gateway opposite Wakeman Road



Perimeter walls and railings. 1831-33 by John William Griffiths, Surveyor to the General Cemetery Company. Yellow-grey-plum stock brick wall, approximately 4-5 metres high, laid in alternative courses of headers and stretchers, with Portland stone coping along northern (Harrow Road) perimeter; projecting engaged piers capped with shallow pyramidal copings of Portland stone; outer face of wall with sloping Portland stone coping to lower level. Sequence of numbered Portland stone tablets placed at high level on outer wall.

Western entrance gates, of cast iron with spearhead rails, set between Portland stone piers in Square 183 of cemetery. Central entrance gates (disused) in Square 80 of cast iron, set between Portland stone piers: a pair of gates with spearhead rails set between two hollow piers of cast iron, each face of which terminates in an eared pediment; and in turn flanked by runs of spearhead rails set into granite kerbs.

Southern perimeter comprises cast iron railings, approximately 2 metres tall, alternating with stretches of brick wall approximately 3 metres tall. Railings, with spearhead finials, are supported with cast iron brackets of scrolled anthemion form set onto dwarf wall of brick with Portland stone coping; some stretches of railings missing at time of inspection. Two gateways along southern side (both disused), in Squares 20 and 82, each with hollow piers of cast iron with eared pediments to each face, some parts missing at time of inspection (1998).
