Boundary wall, railings and war
memorial to south of Town Hall
Boundary wall with railings and steps, and with war memorial.
1900 and 1920. Stone, cast-iron, polished granite. A low
rubble wall with weathered stone coping at approx 1m height to
the left, and approx 1.5m to the right has square piers to
flat domed square cappings at each end, and in 2 pairs at the
entrance to short flights of concrete steps with quarter
landings. The wall extends the width of the frontage of the
main building. Linking the piers is a low railing with
scrolled balustrade. The ensemble is centred to the main
entrance to the Town Hall (qv), at the back of the pavement
and retaining the forecourt. At the upper level, flanked by
the steps, is the granite war memorial in the form of an
unfluted Doric column to a square abacus on echinus in
egg-and-dart carrying a ball finial. This stands on a square
rock-faced granite plinth, with polished panels bearing the
names of those lost in both the 1914/1918 and 1939/1945 wars,
and a stylobate of 3 square granite steps, with polished
treads but rock-faced risers, enclosed in a low iron railing.
