Mary's Churchyard


Railings, gates and piers to Old St Mary's Churchyard. c1873.
Cast into the locks is the name of Young and Co., Founders,
Pimlico. Cast-iron, with brick in Flemish bond and stone
coping to low wall; piers in English bond. Gothic Revival
The structure runs the length of the old churchyard, along
Newington Butts. 25 bays in all, with 2 gates; short return to
Churchyard Row. At far ends are piers, square in section, with
stone capstones; railings set on black brick wall, with
chamfered stone coping. Each bay framed by a pair of thick
uprights, square in section, with heads twisting into flower
petals; a diagonal brace to rear of each. The intermediate
uprights have spear points and twisted tridents. Top rails
treated as floral frieze.
The continuation of the fence along Churchyard Row dates to
the late C20 and is not included.
Built when the medieval church was rebuilt on a site further
south, along Kennington Park Road (qv), and the churchyard
became a public garden.
