Probably built in the early C20, and possibly by Britannia Foundry, Porthmadog, who cast architectural ironwork in the C20.


Two monolithic gate piers stand either side of a single wide cast iron gate, to the R of which is another similar gate attached to the wall of HSBC bank. On the L side is a narrower pedestrian gate attached to a rubble-stone forecourt wall. The Arts-and-Crafts gates have a grid of scrollwork pattern.
