GV II

Also known as: Entrance gates and walls of Winston Churchill Memorial Garden HIGH STREET. Gates, gate piers, wall, end piers and wall to drive. c1831. Pinkish-brown brick walls ashlar coping and stuccoed piers; ornamental iron gates by Thomas Letheren (replaced those by RE Marshall of Cheltenham). Gates have bars and scroll-headed dog-bars; central upper panel of scroll-motif and surmounting floral scroll, between ornamental iron piers. Coped walls adjoining are approx 1.5m long and 2m high extend to tall piers, square on plan with moulded capping. Coped walls to drive are ramped down from piers and extend for approx 45m and are 2m high. HISTORICAL NOTE: The New Burying Ground was acquired in 1830 owing to over-crowding in the churchyard of St Mary's Church, Church Street (qv). Letheren's gates were originally at the entrance to Cypher's Nursery Gardens on Queen's Road and replaced those by Marshall after WWII. A significant streetscape feature, forming an integral part of the setting of St Mary's Cemetery Chapel (qv).
