Yard Gate

A pair of yard gates have been obtained from the Bristol area and are of a standard GWR design. They will form the main entrance to the coach/car park and motor vehicle depot.

They are 20 feet long and 6 feet high. Each one takes more than six people to lift.The cross bracing, although substantial, is pierced through in over sixty places to allow the uprights to be fitted. This has unfortunately greatly reduces its strength and rigidity.

They have been serving the railway for over 60 years and have many battle scars from careless drives (horse and motor vehicle). They will require quite some work to restore their original symmetrical shape.
