The church was extensively restored 1862-64 and the churchyard gates were probably erected at this time. Said to have been fabricated at the Kilgetty ironworks.

Each gate has a hinge style of square section, with elaborate cast iron finial, and a rectangular section meeting style. Three horizontal rails of rectangular section, pierced by round uprights. These terminate in ornate spear-head finials, with scrolled cresting. Shorter uprights below the lock- bar terminate in barbed finials.
