Kissing Gates - Fencing 

Kissing gates are a type of gate commonly found in rural areas, particularly in the countryside of the United Kingdom and other countries. They are designed to allow people to pass through while preventing livestock, such as sheep or cattle, from entering. 
 
Kissing gates are often found along public footpaths or bridleways, where they provide a convenient way for pedestrians and hikers to pass through fences or boundaries without the need to climb over them or open and close traditional gates. They are particularly useful in areas where there is a high concentration of livestock and where it is important to maintain the integrity of boundaries and prevent animals from straying into adjacent fields or areas. 
 
The name "kissing gate" is derived from the way the gate operates. It typically consists of a small gate or barrier that is hinged on one side and swings freely when pushed. When approaching a kissing gate, a person would push the gate open and walk through, and as they continue forward, the gate swings back to its closed position, creating a barrier for animals but allowing easy passage for humans. 
 
Kissing gates are often made of wood or metal, depending on the local materials and preferences. They are a common sight in rural landscapes and are designed to be practical, durable, and low-maintenance. Many walking and hiking trails incorporate kissing gates as a way to facilitate access for pedestrians while maintaining the natural flow of livestock in rural areas.
