Not sure what the original would have looked like but it looks like the braces are running the wrong way on that one.

that gate looks oversized to the brickwork so I'd imagine the original might have fit in tighter to the brickwork and maybe it didn't have a curved top just guessing.

I agree about the arch but its hung on original (pintle)side hinges set into sandstone. the latch is also set in sandstone. these allow for about 40mm thickness. I can't help but think any gate will look a bit untidy at the top.

I did a side gate for a customer end of last year. They struggled with a design and it ended up just being a curved top side gate. I made the boards different widths to try and add a bit of interest. I think quality hinges and latch make a difference.

This was before the posts got cut off.
