Built c.1875, probably to the design of W.E.Nesfield, to provide the main gated entrance to Plâs Dinam. The gate is set at right angles to the road to allow the driveway to turn to climb the bank to the mansion house. The piers are of limestone ashlar, channel rusticated and margin dressed, with hollow moulded corners and moulded gabled capitals. The gate is of timber, with square panels containing iron and timber tracery, and a band of turned balusters at the centre. One retaining wall extends from the right pier in a curve to face the main road, and extends 20m to another terminal pier, and from the left gate pier, parallel to the road before curving back to a terminal pier.
Included as part of a group with the Lodge immediately within the gate, and an element of the total ensemble of Plâs Dinam.
