Holly Road Garden of Rest walls and gateway
This view, taken from within the Holly Road Garden of Rest in Twickenham, shows part of its brick boundary wall and gate piers topped by spherical finials. The iron gate in some disrepair, two brick-walled table tombs, and headstones from the former burial ground stacked against the corner wall. It served as the burial ground for the Parish of St Mary from 1782, but a new ground in Oak Lane was opened in 1835 and the Holly Road ground was officially closed in 1868. Notable interments include General William Howe (1729-1814), who fought in the American War of Independence. It was landscaped for public use in 1953 and provides a recreation space to the rear of the shops on King Street, including a young children’s play area. The walls are listed locally in the Buildings of Townscape Merit Register.
