This report records the evidence collected in a trial of self-closing bridlegates that took place in September 2015. The aim of the trial was to identify the criteria that contributed to safe use and ease of use of gates whilst retaining key features, namely stock proofness and robustness. The analysis of the data is examined in the report and the discussion and conclusion present a number of key recommendations. The audience for the report is expected to be wide ranging, including bodies representing landowners and land managers, regulatory bodies, the manufacturers of gates and user groups.
