The gatepiers were built, probably to the design of W E Nesfield, c1870-5, to replace the gatepiers crowned by lions recorded by Fenton in his 'Tour of Wales' c1808.
The gate piers are of limestone ashlar, square, rising to a moulded necking and dentilled cornice, carrying stilted ball finials. The piers have incuse panels with the Hughes mantled and crested arms, impaled with Ravensworth. Brackets on the outer face drop to the corniced high wing walls on either side, that to the SW ending in a similar but lower pier also with a ball finial, and that to the NE is pierced for a pedestrian gate, close to the portico of the lodge. Iron gates with tall overthrow. The panel on inner face of the piers has sunflowers.
The rectangular area in front of the lodge, outside the gates, is defined by rubble stone walls ending in low piers.
Included as an important feature in the historic Kinmel park, and of group value with the attached St George's Gate Lodge.
