Entrance to the Soldiers Gardens

In 1935 the Prospect Council sought designs for an entrance to the Soldiers' Memorial Gardens and selected a design on 21st October 1935 to be constructed at a cost of £65

Two striking original designs are two be found in the Prospect Local History Collection - pictured here.

It appears that the final design is a modification of sketch 2 with the addition of freestanding pillars.
