The railings would appear to be early/mid C19 and contemporary with the house, but the gate incorporated into the railings is of a prison type and perhaps comes from the now demolished cell-block of the Police Station. Alternatively it could come from the now demolished County Prison on the Hereford Road and was put in when this house became the Police Station in c1888.
Tall wrought iron railing about 2.5m in height running across the rear of the garden facing Chippenham. They include in the centre a barred gate of cell type with heavy lock, vase finials above.
Included for its special interest as an adjunct to a handsome early C19 house with strong group value.
