East Park Gates

A further testament to the concrete pourer's art is to be found adorning the entrance to East Park. They are so horrible that I could find nothing on the net to indicate who designed them, shame is a powerful motive for reticence. So here they stand to welcome the visitor; after this the actual park couldn't be any worse.


  1. Maybe they are cast concrete pieces attached, cemented, to concrete blocks. I think black and white is the right treatment for this photo.

  2. Years ago, as a young boy, I would climb and sit atop the wall to the left to enjoy the £1 worth of sweets I'd buy from the shop at the other side of Holderness Road.

    They are indeed a hideous sight.
