BRIGHTON

TQ3105SE UNION ROAD 577-1/28/915 (North side) 24/07/69 Gate piers to garden of Park Crescent (Formerly Listed as: PARK CRESCENT Wall and Gate posts to Garden of Park Crescent)

GV II

Gate piers. 1822. For James Ireland, as the part of the southern boundary wall of his Royal Gardens. Stucco. Square in plan with chamfered plinths, round-arched niches and entablatures with triglyphs and guttae, deep moulded cornices and blocking courses. The walls to either side have been so far altered, following damage by the hurricane of October 1987, as to be no longer of architectural or historic interest; the gates, of late C19 or early C20 date, have been inserted from elsewhere. The figures of a lion and a lioness on the gate piers, mentioned in the previous list description, were removed in 1987. (Carder T: The Encyclopaedia of Brighton: Lewes: 1990-).
