Listing Text

Pair of stone piers with lamp standard to west end of railway bridge (which is not of special interest). c.1900 for London and North Western Railway. Rusticated Portland stone piers, circular in plan, on deep plinths and with cyma recta cornice. To top, metal lamp standards with fluted shafts and a pair of arms to each side. The lamp globes have been removed. Each pier has scrolled stone brackets that rest on the parapets of the Mornington Street bridge.

HISTORY: The railway bridge over the London-Rugby line was widened at this crossing between Euston and Camden c.1900. Contract drawings survive.

Forms a group with the separately listed piers to east end. Also group value with listed buildings on Park Village East. The Mornington Street bridge and attached walls are not included in the listing.

Listed as c.1900 Neo-Classical style Portland stone bridge piers with integral ornate metal lamp standards that have strong group value and form an architectural announcement to this prominent railway crossing.
