Dolwilym was a castellated country house built 1842-5 for the Protheroe family, but abandoned after 1908. It was demolished in 1984. The gateway is in similar style to the house, and therefore is probably also of the 1840s.
A castellated gateway of rubble stone. Square turrets have narrow loops (arched to the rear elevation) and corbelled battlements of coursed rubble with copings. Between the turrets is a steeply pointed arch of narrow freestone voussoirs, and a stepped gable. Older gate piers are built into the jambs. Gates have been removed.
Listed as a striking, picturesque mid C19 archway, and for group value with the parish church and lych gate.
