Description

The monument consists of a pair of wrought iron gates with elaborate scrollwork, made in 1720 by the Davies Brothers of Bersham.

The central double gates, single side gates, and the panels flanking them each have overthrows, rising successively to the centre of the gates. There are rusticated stone piers crowned by moulded urns at each end of the gates. Beyond those in quadrants are further sections of ironwork, with overthrows, spanning Temple Row.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of entrance architecture. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structure itself may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques. Gates may be part of a larger cluster of monuments and their importance can further enhanced by their group value.

The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
