671-1/5/183 (West side)
Entrance gate piers and wall to east
of Cumberland Infirmary


Gate piers and wall. Probably early 1930s. Brick wall partly
on chamfered plinth (all dressings of calciferous sandstone)
with stone cornice and coping; tall squared piers with stepped
caps and urn finials; patterned cast- and wrought-iron work
between piers originally supported gate (now missing). Wall
right of the gate is higher and links with main hospital
building, with an additional pedestrian gate; the left wall
starts at same height but is stepped down to a lower level.
Previously there was an entrance with a long drive from
Newtown Road: this new entrance would seem to be part of the
1930s work when an extra storey was added to the main
building. Continuation of the plain brick wall down Infirmary
Street is not of interest. Wall is included for group value
