Opened in 1870 Whitehall Gardens stretch parallel with the Victoria Embankment and comprise grassed areas and flower beds. The gardens also feature statues of William Tynedale, Sir Henry Bartle Frere and General Sir James Outram which are located down the centre line of the garden.
Part of the Victoria Embankment Gardens, Whitehall Gardens is one of a series of four public gardens created after 1864 following the embankment of the Thames River. In 2000, the gardens benefited from a Millennium Award which was used to enhance shrubbery within the flower beds.
Alpha Rail was appointed by J Murphy & Sons in 1993 to supply and install 290 metres of decorative metal railings, double leaf gates, piers, trip rail and side panels. The railings feature bespoke architectural metalwork within the infill bars as well as fabricated finials. They were galvanized and painted black.
Whitehall Gardens is one of the projects Alpha Rail has chosen to feature as part of its 30th Anniversary showcase. The aim is to feature now and then pictures of past projects to highlight how well Alpha Rail metal railings have lived up to our promise of high quality and will endure the test of time.
Other projects in the showcase include:
- Crystal Palace Park, Bromley
- Camden Gardens, London
- Beaumont Road, London
- Cherry Gardens, Bermondsey
- Raleigh Gardens, Lambeth
- Red Lion Square, Holborn
- St John’s Park, Isle of Dogs
