Gate and railings, wrought iron. 1715-20, formed entrance to no.42 Newington Green of

with thin "dog bars", lock bar with tendrils, only three intact. Frame and gate spanned by
filigree pediment, ogival in outline, at the centre of which the initial "H" in an armorial

north of the Green at the close of the C16. Railings in four curving sections to left, along
Green Lanes, and 6 curving sections to Albion Road: uprights square in section, finishing
in plain spear heads; urns to thicken uprights which are braced to rear, one of the urns no
