The GWR/WSR examples have a spigot attached to the bottom cross-bar of the gate (near to the hinge end) which passes down through an arc-shaped slot in a metal 'floor' plate. In looking at photos of BR(S) era locations, admittedly none very close-up to the gates, I can no sign of any such arrangement. By contrast, I get the impression that the 'hinge' at the bottom of their gates was a vertical pivot and presumably it is that which extended downwards and carried the bracket to which Graham referred in his post? Am I right please?
