Location: at Berryhill Greenway - at one of the entrances to the park nearest to Uffington Parade
Installed: 2000
Commissioned by: Stoke on Trent City Council

Three gateways were constructed (Stone, timber and metal). The Timber Gateway is the central Gateway and commemorates agriculture and early mining in the area before it became heavily industrialised.

The use of timber was part of the brief, in that it used a material that reflected the level of human development on the site at that time.

The wooden panel consists of six wooden planks supported between two upright wooden poles, with a circular roundel of a bird on the front face at the top. The bird is flanked by a flower and a bird. Below is a butterfly, flanked by a dragonfly and a flower. Beneath is an owl, another bird, and a heron. Below are several animals, including a rabbit, a hedgehog, a lizard and another bird. At the bottom of the panel are two working men, one a farm labourer with a scythe, the other a miner with pick and shovel.

The panel is intended both to commemorate the past history of the site and to celebrate the variety of wildlife found there today.
