Listing Text


ISLINGTON

TQ3282SW OLD STREET
635-1/75/675 (North side)
29/09/72 Railings and gates around St Luke's
churchyard

GV II

Churchyard railings and gates. c.1852. Brick and cast iron.
The railings surround the churchyard on four sides, and are
set on a low brick wall which was probably originally faced
with panels of cast iron; these survive on most of the Old
Street front. On that front the railings have palmette finials
with fluted standards of the same design; mid-rail with
half-height railings; gate-piers to east and west end formed
of four clustered standards to either side with lamp standards
superimposed, two standards missing to east gate-pier; both
gates at the west end carry shields lettered 'ST.LUKE.
MIDDLESEX. A.D.1852.' On Helmet Row, Ironmonger Row and
Mitchell Street the railings are plainer. Gate-piers formed of
clustered standards in Helmet Row and Mitchell Row. Scrolled
brackets throughout.
