There are two similar gatepiers, moved to the Presbyterian Church in Princes Street when it was built in 1885. The gaol closed in 1878 and stones from the cell blocks were allegedly used by W.G. James to build Plas Offa c1880.

Exterior

Two massive gatepiers in sandstone. Square bases, monolith shafts with inset necks and cross-gabled caps. Attached massive inner gatestops with scrolled tops. To right spearhead iron low railings on squared stone low walls, with tall matching centre iron gate in line with front door, with spearhead dogbars and urn-capped standards.
