Project: Hyde Park Corner Screen, London

Client: The Royal Parks

The Hyde Park Corner Screen located at Hyde Park Corner next to Apsley House was designed in 1825 by Decimus Burton. It was constructed between 1826 – 29 and forms a grand exit from the Park on the ceremonial route to Buckingham Palace. The gate is thirty-three meter (107 ft.) wide with three arches connected by an Ionic colonnade. Each of the side arches is abutted with a flat arched opening and pedestrian gate. All arches have ornamental cast iron gates opening to the Park.  The main arch has smaller gates on the outside.  The colonnade screens are fronted by decorative arrowhead cast iron railings on both sides. It is Grade I Listed.

As part of an ongoing maintenance and conservation plan, Barwin has carried out the restoration of the ornamental cast iron gates and railings. All works were undertaken by our skilled, competent and experienced operatives in accordance with the instructions from The Royal Parks.
Scope of works:
  • Dry grit blasting to remove all coatings and contaminants from the vehicle gates and pedestrian gate
  • Preparation and redecoration of the gates in accordance with Hempel paint system specifications
  • Application of an additional two top coats of SC329 bronze green.
