History

C19 iron gates and pierced cast-iron gatepiers to Llanboidy churchyard. The gates are of unusual elaboration for a churchyard, and may have been moved here from a country house, perhaps Maesgwynne.

Exterior

Two open-work cast-iron gatepiers and double iron gates. Piers have plinth with 4 scrolls then shafts with pattern of opposed half-circles intersected by mirrored serpentine curve and top Celtic cross pattern formed of fleur-de-lys within circle. Corniced caps with concave pyramid stands to ball finials.
Twin gates have top-rails ramped down, double middle rail and 2 double bottom rails. Dog-bars to lower half, lotus finials.

Reasons for Listing

Included as an ornate example of Victorian ironwork.
