TQ 2381 NE EXMOOR STREET

249-/9/10038 Lodge, gates, piers and
railings to St Charles'
Hospital

II

Hospital gatehouse, dated 1883, to the designs of Henry Saxon Snell as part of the infirmary for the St
Marylebone Board of Guardians. Brick with some painted stone dressings, slate roofs with crestings.
Asymmetrical two-storey plan presents three-bay gable front to private hospital road, with projecting
one-bay wing to right, and high dormer in roof to left. Three-light central bay window to front under
flat, painted stone band and datestone in parapet, the other windows pointed, the two in first-floor gable
paired under large hoodmould with decorative brickwork in tympanum. Pointed arch also over
flat-headed door, with herringbone brickwork. All windows double-hung sashes without glazing bars
except to elevation facing Exmoor Street, where two small windows break the impact of the solid wall.
Attached to the gatehouse are railings and gates, cast-iron on stone plinth with bulbous decorative
spearheads and alternating shorter rails below mid-rail. The composition includes five massive brick and
stone square piers, two as gatepiers surmounted by 1950s lights of no intrinsic value, three irregularly
spaced. Gatepiers with chamfered stone waists, all with pyramidal and gableted tops.
The lodge, gates and piers for an important element in the cohesive composition of St George's
Hospital, visually constraining its taller elements on their tight site.
