It comprises a cart gate at the centre, with pedestrian gate to the right beyond a full width rectangular pier, and a small enclosed structure at the left end, said to be a stable for the parson's cob. The roof has open rafters, supported on tapered king posts on the cross walls. The pedestrian gate has a pierced lintel for a former turning gate. The stable has a small ventilated opening to the front and a boarded door set in a dowelled frame. the present gates are a later replacement.
