Small C19 pedestrian gate in wrought iron to footpath up to The Parade. The Parade was laid out by public subscription in 1782, a source in 1801 refers to music from a militia band and a long broad walk. A print of c1874 shows it lined on both sides with trees and shrubs.
Small pair of iron gates at top end of footpath. Gates have spear-head rails, bottom, mid and top rails, the top rails on a slight curve up to meeting stile. The SE gate is fixed against a late C19 fluted cast-iron bollard with ball finial, inscribed "Jones and Sons, Priory Foundry, Carmarthen". Gates are flanked by plain stone piers projecting from flanking walls. Stretch of wall running E adjoining has triangular iron-slag coping stones. Gate was removed and re-erected 2002.
Included as a small C19 pedestrian gate of locally-made ironwork, part of an interesting scheme of urban planning with its origin in the late C18.
