The gates were installed at All Saints in 1959 with a memorial notice to the 16 governors who worshipped there. 

The iron gates were made at Sutton Forest and were erected at "Hill View", the country residence of New South Wales governors from 1879 to 1957. They consist of double carriage gates and two side gates with VR 1890 inscribed on the posts.
