BRIGHTON

TQ3205NW HARTINGTON ROAD 577-1/23/339 (North side) Brighton and Preston Cemetery: entrance gates, walls, piers and railings

GV II

Entrance gates, walls, piers and railings to Brighton and Preston Cemetery. Dated 1885 over the side arches. Buff terracotta, flint and wrought-iron. The gates form part of a terracotta screen of 5 bays, the central bay broader and higher, forming the carriage arch. Late Gothic in style. The carriage arch consists of panelled and pinnacled piers, the arch between having a pointed-arched intrados and gabled extrados, the tympanum filled with quatrefoil ornament with the words 'BRIGHTON & PRESTON CEMETERY' superimposed. Each of the 2 narrower bays on either side reproduces the extrados/intrados arrangement, but with a Tudor-arched opening below it, the inner bay on either side forming a pedestrian entrance, the outer filled with a wrought-iron screen. Wrought-iron gates to all 3 entrances with scrolling and cusped ironwork. The design of the inner, north side is the same as the south without the lettering. Dwarf walls, connected to the gateway, curve round into Hartington Road; they are of flint with terracotta coping, and have piers with crested tops, and wrought-iron railings between.
