Railings in High West Jesmond

Have you ever thought about the railings around the sreeets of High West Jesmond?

A heritage post by Chris Morgan

Recently the subject of the original iron railings came up.

A few samples have survived, almost all on corners, which leaves one to suspect this was policy.

I’d previously spotted sections that could have been deep in a privet hedge, but most of these samples pictured here couldn’t have been hidden in a hedge.

Several houses have added their own replacements and one near the bottom of Treherne Road gets very close to the original.

How many more sections have survived?
