12/07/72 Railings and gate to No.14
Railings and gate, c1750.
MATERIALS: Wrought and cast iron.
DESCRIPTION: In the centre is a segment-arched double gate with openwork piers and an overthrow. The piers are surmounted by masks, scrolls and urn-shaped finials (left finial missing). Flanking the gate are spearhead railings with urn-shaped finials, some missing. The railings are set on a brick retaining wall with chamfered ashlar coping, rebuilt in the street widening of 1874.
HISTORY: Heathcoat Street was created by widening Beck Lane in 1874. No. 16 dates from 1750 and was originally known as Morley House. Charles and Mrs A Morley made their fortune manufacturing Nottingham's brown salt-glazed earthenware. In 1854 the house was acquired by George Gill for the People's Hall, a temperance centre related to his People's College. No. 14, known as Churchill House, dates from the late C18 and is thought to have been the service range to Morley House. The railings and gate in front of Churchill House date from c1750 and originally stood in front of Morley House. They were moved to the side when the street was widened in 1874.

REASONS FOR DESIGNATION DECISION:
The railings and gate to Churchill House are designated at grade II, for the following principal reasons:
* They are a good example of mid C18 wrought and cast iron street furniture
* They have group value with Churchill House and the adjacent People's Hall, originally Morley House.
