The dressed and rubble sandstone of this arched gateway provides interesting textural variation to the site. This entrance mirrors that of the archway opposite, both having been used as a private walkway for the Bagwell Family of Marlfield House. These gates form part of a group of related structures with Saint Patrick's Church and the demesne of Marlfield House.
