Includes: Boundary wall & 2 archways to W & S sides of churchyard of Church of All Saints CRAWFORD STREET. Boundary wall to churchyard, with 2 archways and some railings. Archway to west of church probably late C15 or early C16; the rest probably later C19. Coursed squared sandstone; cast-iron railings. The archway west of the church has chamfered piers with buttresses, a moulded depressed arch with a hood-mould which has square stops and a C20 finial cross; and a 2-stage hipped and pitched cavetto-moulded parapet. The boundary wall attached to this, curved round to Crawford Street, is approximately 1-2m high with 16 ramps down the slope; former railings to this wall removed. At the curved south corner to King Street West is a C19 archway copying the other (but with a flight of steps on the inner side rising to church gardens). Beyond this archway the wall follows King Street West as far as the former Reform Club building, where it makes a re-entrant turn behind that building and towards the church, the whole of this length being approximately 3m high, with 3 ramps to King Street West, and surmounted by cast-iron railings matching those which enclose the church. Forms group with Church of All Saints (qv).
