TQ3084NW MARKET ROAD 635-1/43/619 (North side) Railings, walls, gate piers and gates to Caledonian Park

GV II

Railings, walls, gate piers and gates to Caledonian Park, extending for c.250 metres on the south side of the Park in Market Road, and for c.120 metres on the east side in Shearling Way. 1854. Probably designed by J.B.Bunning. Cast iron with brick panels at the corners. The piers are panelled antae crowned with antefixae and bracketed finials. The railings have a coved plinth, cylindrical rails except for two at the centre of each bay which are square in plan and bracketed, and bud finials, every other one of which is taller and pierced. The gates follow the main lines of the railings with the addition of a curved brace across each panel and a circle in the resulting spandrel; there are seven gates on the south side and five on the east, and the central gate has pairs of piers and a narrower gate on each side. The south-east corner of the Park is chamfered in plan with three panels of yellow brick set in Flemish bond with one flat-arched entrance, now blocked, stone plinth and brick coping. The existing railings etc. are only a part of those which originally provided a boundary to the Caledonian Market; some of the gate piers and gates are damaged, there are occasional gaps in the railings, and there is a gap of c.15 metres in the existing railings in Shearling Way.
