Wall and railings to south of the
Church of St John the Evangelist
Retaining wall and railings. Wall probably 1820s, railings
presumably 1861-73 and designed by GE Street, contemporary
with the Church of St.John the Evangelist. Local grey
limestone rubble wall, cast-iron railings. Impressively tall
retaining wall to the terrace with flight of steps up from
Cary Lodge (qv); string course on inner side. In front of the
church the wall is coped with limestone and crowned with
exceptionally bold High Victorian railings with
cinquefoil-headed arches between scrolled verticals with orb
finials. Arches enriched with scrolls, flower shapes and
twists on either side of tapering verticals.
Fine example of high quality, High Victorian ironwork.
