SE2933NE GREAT GEORGE STREET 714-1/75/197 (North side) 08/10/70 Boundary wall and railings to Leeds General Infirmary with gate piers and gates (Formerly Listed as: GREAT GEORGE STREET (North side) Boundary wall and Gates to Leeds General Infirmary)

GV II

Boundary wall with railings and gate piers. 1863-8, altered late C19. By Sir George Gilbert Scott. Brick, English bond, ashlar and brick piers, stone copings and details, wrought-iron railings. Overall length approx 100m, height of railings approx 1-1.5m and gate piers 2m. The length fronting the original Infirmary is angled to turn corner into Thoresby Place, left and has inner and outer piers with crocket-style finials with railings fronting left return of Infirmary; at the right (east) end the walling is interrupted by the wide carriage entrance flanked by narrower pedestrian gateways, gates missing. Roll moulding to wall coping, railings with zigzag interlaced iron straps, C-scroll plaques and flower-bud finials; brick piers with corniced capstones and trefoil plaques to finials. Main gate piers are square in section, have attached corner shafts with foliate capitals, gabled capstones, the inner pair elaborated with carved foliage to entablature and plaque on gable front. The 1891 Ordnance Survey map shows the curved carriage drive with angled gateways at each end; the gateway right was probably repositioned when the extension was added to the hospital late C19.
