Kissing gate, Rushall
Kissing gate, Rushall
The kissing gate is a traditional gate hung in a U or V shape that allows one person to pass at a time. In order for one person to pass fully through the gate they have to close it to the next person. Legend has it that at this point, when the two are on either side of the gate, the person in front 'refuses' entry to the second person until presented with a kiss.
This gate allows walkers to reach the church, having crossed fields from the other end of the village.
