Probably built in the mid C19 to connect the harbour with new houses on Garth Road, which were built from the mid C19 onwards. The steps are indicated on the 1871 Tremadog estate plan and shown on the 1885 harbour survey.
Three steep contiguous flights of steps with renewed concrete treads over the original slate. The steps are between garden walls and end walls of the abutting buildings. Only at the bottom is there an iron handrail.
Listed as a distinctive historical townscape feature for its contribution to the historical integrity of Porthmadog harbour.
