    St Annes Gates: I think they're at the start of Overbury Street/Chatham Place.
    I noticed that the gates at Wavertree Playground have recently been painted.

    I like these gates. When I was a child I used to love swinging on gates.

    I may give some of these a go for old times sake, but I think I would be arrested by police for having fun.

    Maybe I should do it in a mask and be like a ninja. The ninja of GATES!!!!!

    I wonder if I could find a Lion-O mask on ebay.......

    Now this is a rather strange photo - it seems to show Princes* Park Gates during the gilding of the 'Sunburst' effect, with only the right-hand one having been completed. Can this pic be dated and what is the source, please?

    (* It's Princes with one 's', by the way - after Prince Albert, the Prince Regent)

    Walk through Dino's Gates

    The iron Renwick gates fashioned as an ogee arch,
    finally set up, a century late, gateposts sculpted

    in warm red-sandstone by Constantine Seferlis,
    truthfully not wild like the leering ogres conjured

    up by this cheeky animalier: bulldog, poodle,
    a cat w/ bird in teeth, praying mantis, praying pig.

    Come walk through Dino's gates this fine spring
    morning; feel free to ogle the rampant pink magnolia,

    startle-Tweety-bird yellow witch hazel, and, lookee!
    hid by a dusky wall, a lavender Korean rhododendron.

    Default Princes Park Gates - An Update

    Now that these historic gates have finally been gilded, they have a more dramatic appearance. Although now splendidly refurbished, the authentic Invisible Green colour had been criticised by some as being rather dull and lacking in impact.

    These are the gates to Walton Park Cemetery, now also the entrance to Rice Lane Farm.
    They are inspired by Jean Millet's "Angelus (see painting)
