Old Greenock Gates

These old Greenock gates have seen better days!

They show Greenock's coat of arms - you can read what the symbols mean here.

God Speed Greenock - a proud motto from Greenock's past as a leading trading port and shipbuilding town.

One side of the gates has weathered better than the other.  They are on a quiet street, not many people will have noticed them.

Hope one day these are taken away from the yard they open into, restored and given a much better home somewhere where they can be seen and appreciated by many more people.

Joining with Good Fences - come over and join us.
