London Parks And Gardens – The Hon.ble Mrs. Evelyn Cecil, 1907:
The railings of Regent’s Park have always been of timber, but it is now threatened to alter this survival of the days when it first changed from Marylebone Farm. The present timber fence has stood for forty years, so even from an economical point of view iron, which requires painting, could not be recommended. It is to be hoped the old traditional style of fence of this delightful Park may be continued.
