635-1/43/618 (South side)
Railings & gates to Islington Tennis
Centre and King George's Field


Railings, gate piers and gates extending for c.250 metres on
the south side of Market Road. 1854. Probably designed by
J.B.Bunning. Cast iron. 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
five 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. Some of the piers have lost their
antefixae and finials, and some railings are missing.
