The church was extensively restored 1862-64 and the churchyard gates were probably erected at this time. Said to have been fabricated at the Kilgetty ironworks.
Pair of wrought iron gates with cast iron finials, square stone gate piers with simple square moulding and shallow pyramidal copings. Each gate has a hinge style of square section, with elaborate cast iron finial, and a rectangular section meeting style. Three horizontal rails of rectangular section, pierced by round uprights. These terminate in ornate spear-head finials, with scrolled cresting. Shorter uprights below the lock- bar terminate in barbed finials.
Listed as one of a series of fine entrance gates to the churchyard, which represent good examples of locally produced ironwork.
