21/09/78 Boundary wall and gate piers from
Vicarage to Alma Terrace


Boundary wall and gate piers. c 1875. Portland ashlar. Eight
sets of gate piers with linking walls, from west end of St.
Peter's churchyard to the return to front of Alma Terrace
(qv). Large square piers set to moulded plinth and with heavy
pyramidal capping on moulded pier head. Corners of piers with
small inset colonettes. Piers are linked between gateways by
series of stepped panels of wall, rising to c 1.4m;
saddle-back coping with roll mould over series of sunk panels,
and plinth continuous with gate piers. At the S end the wall
returns at right angles to the face of No 1, Alma Terrace. At
the west end the wall returns as boundary between the
churchyard and the Vicarage (qv), then along the north side of
the churchyard, including further pair of matching gate piers
opposite north transept of church, returning again along SE
boundary of churchyard. A boundary stone is built into the
wall at its W end, facing Grove Road. It bears the WD arrow
above an anchor and the number 70. Very substantial elements,
playing a significant part in tying together this group of
related buildings, and in defining the street. They also link
with the wall defining the north side of Grove Road, further
west, and with the lofty wall to HM Young Offenders
Institution to the S (qv).
