North and south railings, Crystal Palace Parade, Crystal Palace Park SE19 - Bromley

Decorative cast iron railings on gault brick plinths with stone copings, which formed the main pedestrian entrance to the Crystal Palace (demolished following a major fire in 1936) from Crystal Palace Parade. There is damage to some cast iron panels and the dwarf wall, and a long section of curved railing is missing from the north section. A condition survey of the railings was completed in 2015, with funding from Historic England. Discussions are ongoing to secure their full repair as part of the park's wider regeneration plan.
