Each gate has a hinge style of square section, with elaborate cast iron finial, and a rectangular section, pierced by round uprights. These terminate in ornate spear-head finials, with scrolled cresting. Shorter uprights below the lock-bar terminate in bared finials.
Listed as one of a series of fine iron entrance gates to the churchyard, which represent good examples of locally produced ironwork.
