Queens Park Main Gates

There are four gates - east, west, south and the main gate. The main gates are supported by four red sandstone gateposts. Each post has emblems surmounted upon them. The gates themselves are very impressive, made in ornamental ironwork. The two side gates have the date of the dedication (1887) moulded into the ironwork, whilst the main gate is surmounted by a royal crown.


The main Gates at the Queens Park very rarely is there any pictures of them close up. There are lots of the main entrance showing the gates but very few of the actual gates. They are due for a overhaul in the restoration and as you can see above they are suffering.
