Railings, Thornhill Square N1 - Islington

Cast iron railings, circa 1852, to the perimeter of the central garden square, with foliated spear-head finials set in a moulded plinth on brickwork. Parts of the railings are misaligned, degraded and cracked, with missing elements. Historic England part-funded pilot repairs to the railings in 2010 and in May 2017 offered a grant to the Local Authority for a specialist measured survey and costed condition survey. These were completed in 2017. The Local Authority is considering a project for the full repair of the railings, together with the restoration of the gardens.
