Gates and railings to Parish Church bear the stamp 'WREXHAM 1816'. At that time there was a foundry in Tuttle Street, Wrexham worked by Jones, Lacon and Jones and they may well have been responsible for these gates and railings. The gates stand on the site of the old lych gate.


Gothic style, squared gate piers contain quatrefoils with floral centre detailing. The piers are surmounted by later lamps. 2 end piers of similar style, that to right is finished with a cast iron urn. Railings contain friezes containing quatrefoil detailing with decorative baluster heads. Similar detail to gates including quatrefoil lock and dog bars.
