Wall, approx 80m in Denmark Terrace and approx 50m in Temple Gardens. 1819. Built in connection with the house which is now part of Brighton and Hove High School for Girls (qv), for Thomas Read Kemp. Red and yellow brick set in English bond, knapped flints, cobbles and stucco. In Temple Gardens the wall consists of a layer of knapped flint, then 3 courses of red brick, and then cobbles set in mortar in panels of yellow brick and a coping of cement; in Denmark Terrace there is the same design but without the bottom layer of flint. At either end of the wall in Temple Gardens are round domed piers with a cornice covered in stucco; in Denmark Terrace there are 2 entrances, each flanked by 2 pairs of square piers detailed as for the wall, with stucco cornice and antefixae, some of whose faces are decorated with the heads of lions; one such entrance also in Temple Gardens and one further square pier forming an additional entrance with the western round pier. A plaque by the south gate in Denmark Terrace commemorates TR Kemp. The wall has been considerably renewed.
