Full Description

Gateway and railings. 1857-8. Designed by George Fowler Jones of York (Yorkshire Gazette), manufactured by William Walker. Brick plinth with ashlar copings and gate piers, iron railings and gates. Railings front Bootham and form south-western boundary to grounds of Bootham Park Hospital (qv); main gateway near south-east end. The railings are set on a dwarf wall with deeply-chamfered copings and are supported by intermediate piers of a chamfered square section that tapers to become octagonal; ball finials. Diagonally-set square bars with top rail crested by spear finials every sixth of which is raised on scrollwork. The hospital entrance has double gates and side gates which match the railings and have closely-spaced dog bars with arcuate braces beneath twin rails with rings. Banded gate piers with triglyphs, paterae and cornices surmounted by lanterns on scrolled supports. The railings terminate at banded end piers; near the west end is a double gate. (York Historian: Malden J: The Walker Ironfoundry, York, c.1825-1923: York: 1976-: 51).
