Gateway, c.1725, originally built as gateway in boundary wall to school comprising pair of rubble stone piers with elliptical-headed opening over having red brick dressings. Boundary wall truncated, c.1985, to plinth level and mostly reconstructed.
This gateway, originally a component of a rubble stone boundary wall screening Ballitore Quaker School, is of considerable social and historical interest, representing the last fragment of the former school on site. The construction of the arch, which has retained its original shape, is of some technical interest. The arch has an attractive, if subtle, impact on the streetscape.
