Railings round central garden
Railings. 1819-1841. Cast iron. To perimeter of central garden square. Spear-headed bars with pineapple finials to standards. Wilmington Square was created from the Earls of Northampton's Spa Fields Estate, which in 1817 the ninth Earl assigned to his heir Lord Compton. The subsequent building in Wilmington Square was one of London's first post-Waterloo developments. Progress was piecemeal and for financial reasons the square was reduced in depth and thus became a backwater on the fringes of estates.
