Boundary wall, railing and gates to memorial garden. 1930-38, by Albert Herbert for his cousin Sir Alfred Herbert, in memory of Florence Herbert. Red sandstone ashlar, with bronze railing and gates.

The wall forms the western boundary of the garden, running from Cook Street Gate southwards to Swanswell Gate on the east side of Chauntry Place. Total length approximately 175m. Chamfered plinth and chamfered coping, with roll moulding. Bronze railing approximately 175mm high, with single square bar carried by posts with acorn finials and the initials 'FH' (Florence Herbert). Towards the northern end, a gateway to Lady Herbert's Homes (qv), with rebated square piers with moulded square caps. Bronze handgate with vertical bars. Between the almshouses and the wall, a similar handgate. Farther south, a similar gateway leading to Lady Herbert's Garden. At the south end, the wall has a stepped coping, and curves sharply at the southern end of the garden.
