Boundary wall, Kingsway College
Clerkenwell Centre


Wall. Incorporates considerable stretches of the boundary wall
of the former Middlesex House of Detention, 1847, repaired and
altered, especially in 1893 and 1902 as part of the boundary
wall to the former Hugh Myddelton Schools, and dated on the
inner faces of the entrances themselves. The wall extends
along the whole of the site in Skinner Street and in

to the eastern end of the outbuilding of c.1892 (q.v.) in Sans
Walk. Brown and yellow brick, mostly laid in English bond;
tiled coping, and occasional brick piers capped with stone,
and buttresses to the inner sides; entrances for 'Special

'Girls and Infants' and 'Cookery & Laundry' in Clerkenwell
Close; all with stone architraves and wrought-iron gates.
