Entrance Wall and gates
to Christchurch Park
TM 1644 NE 2/333


A late Cl9 or early C2O red brick wall with purple brick diapering, built
in a similar style to the C16 wall adjoining on the east. It sweeps back
in a wide semi-circle from the frontage of Soane Street with large square
corner and gate piers which are surmounted by stone cone finials. The central
gateway has a plain wrot iron gate. At the south end there is a side entrance
way with a stepped wall and a Tudor arch with stone hood mould. The gateway
stands between 2 piers. At the south end the wall incorporates No 1 Soane
Street (The Lodge to Christchurch Mansion) of which a gabled wing projects
in front.

Nos 2 to 8 (even), No 1 (Lodge to Christchurch Mansion), Entrance Wall
and Gates to Christchurch Park and Brick Wall to St Margaret's Churchyard
form a group with Nos 56 and 58 (Cafe Blanchfleur), St Margaret's Street.
