The kissing gate is located on the small path between Largs Avenue and the Power Station Road. It is a gate for pedestrians only and gets its name due to the central movable gate kissing (touching) the curved half moon part of the structure.

These gates are common in the countryside as it stops animals from passing through. To use this gate you walk in half way, move over to the half moon area, then move the movable part the opposite way and you can now  pass.
