Thought to have been made in a forge at Glangrwyne on the N bank of the Usk, after 1830 by when the road is known to have been realigned from its original route which passed through the grounds of the house. Other pairs of similar gates are found in the locality. Plas Llangattwg, home of the Morgan family, dates from the Tudor period, it was largely rebuilt in the early C18 and substantially remodelled in the late C18.
