Upper and Lower Terraces, Crystal Palace Park SE19 - Bromley

Terraces designed by Sir Joseph Paxton and situated to the east of the site of Crystal Palace (re-erected here in 1852-4 and burnt down in 1936), on the west of Crystal Palace Park. The terraces are in a very poor condition and suffering from erosion. Repair and conservation works have been completed on the six sphinxes which adorn them, funded by the Local Authority, the Mayor of London, and Historic England. Discussions are ongoing to determine an approach to further conservation works as part of the wider strategic regeneration plan for the park.
