Description

Terraced single-bay single-storey gateway, built 1852. The open gateway is constructed in the shape of a horseshoe with dressed stone surround. The keystone is inscribed with the date 1852. The gate announced the presence of a blacksmiths shop which was set to the rear of the adjoining building. The structure fronts onto the pavement.

Appraisal

A somewhat romantic legacy of the Victorian view of the blacksmith's trade. It adds an unusual variety and interest to the streetscape.
