History

Late C19 gates at the main entrance to Plas Llanfair. The Plas Llanfair estate was purchased in 1853 by Lord Clarence Paget, Son of the First Marquess of Anglesey. The main house later became the Indefatigable Nautical Training School, and is now the property of the M.O.D. The lodge became a private house in late 1980s. The lodge is shown on the 25" O.S. map (1st Edition).

Exterior

Main gates of cast-iron with smaller pedestrian gate to the left, with cast-iron piers enriched with moulded panels, heavy projecting cornice surmounted by stylised acorn finials. The gates have rich Gothic-style ornamentation, including cusped braces forming interlaced tracery arcading, quatrefoil panels to lock bar, ornate dogbars, scrolled dart finials to curved brace of upper rail. Similar railings link the gates with the lodge to the left.
