Garden walls. Circa 1904 by Sir George Barham, founder of Express Dairies but reusing c1700 cast iron railings from the forecourt of St Paul's Cathedral by Sir Christopher Wren. Roughly rectangular garden walls of local sandstone seven feet high with eight courses, the top one being a capping triangular in section, except along the south side where the wall is lower with curved ends and there are cast iron railings set into the wall of a baluster pattern with spear finals. The entrance gates in the centre of the north side also are made from these railings.
HISTORY: These railings are considered to have been the first railings wholly cast in iron and Sir Christopher Wren had them made at a Gloucester forge. Sir George Barham made a contribution of ?10 to the Cathedral Decoration Fund at the suggestion of the Dean. The walls are shown on the Ordnance Survey map of 1910.
