GREAT YARMOUTH

TG5206 QUEEN'S ROAD
839-1/6/149 (South side)
St Nicholas' Hospital, Walls and
railings

GV II

Walls and railings. 1811 with mid C20 insertions and repairs.
By Edward Holl and William Pilkington, architects at the Navy
Board. Brick and cast-iron. The walls run round the west,
south and east sides of the site, the east run having been
partly rebuilt mid C20. Railings to the north, entrance, side
and returning to the west. The walls to south and east have a
plinth course and pilasters rising to a saw-toothed cornice,
forming regular recessed panels. Brick coping. The east run is
plain. The railings are original to the centre section between
rendered brick piers: circular-section verticals with billet
collars at neck and foot, billets at junction with
diamond-section top rail and obelisk finials over a reduced
palmette bobbin; circular-section standards with billet
collars at neck and foot rising to finials of naval crowns.
Closes the road front to the former Naval Hospital (qv). The
area inside formerly contained officers' houses for the
hospital.
