      I noticed on the tram today that the railing are in the process of being removed at the side of the hospital here – the old buiding dated 1720. The last two main metal railings/pillars were being removed. This should be an improvent as the area behind the railing was previously used as a bin for passers-bye

      Yeah, the railing really were very nice indeed but behind them was a complete eyesore. Maybe are some plans to do something actually nice for this new open area. We’ll just have to wait and see.

      I can’t find any record of a planning application; maybe they were sold to make up a little of the deficet in the Health budget

      This is typical of the interfering and meddling councils/builders who cant leave well alone. There is nothing left in the city or country that hasn’t been tampered with, having its original features altered or removed.

      I walk past there regularly. The old railings were badly corroded and in danger of collapsing. They form part of the protected structureso i ‘m pretty sure they are being restored and will be reinstated.

      The railings appear to have been pretty carefully removed and taken away – the granite bases were drilled out and the gate posts dug up, so I assume they are being restored rather than scrapped.
