History

The gates and gatepiers were designed by Clough Williams-Ellis and donated by Pwllheli town council to the Lloyd George memorial park, being erected and opened on the 17th January 1952.

Exterior

The Pwllheli gates are set in a curved re-entrant of the roadside wall. Tall gate piers constructed of squared rubble, with offsetting top courses forming a rough cornice, surmounted by a step and tall urn finials with flaming gadrooned tops. Wrought iron gates, made by the Glaslyn Foundry, Portmadoc, with side panels, and having a lock and top rail sweeping up from the monogram crest at the centre to the elephant and castle badge of the donor town. Slate plaques mounted on the outward facing side of the piers recording the dates.

Reasons for Listing
