In 2008 a young man, Aaron Givens joined our architects, Gilling Dod to undertake his two week work experience placement. Aaron was tasked to do some designs for the new Penny Lane project. The task was to create a design for the Penny Lane gates.

Aaron was sixteen years old and was proving to be a great design artist. Aaron was informed that the gates had to have a Beatles theme and he could choose which Beatles theme he wanted to portray.

The gates were created with the late George Harrison in mind. Aaron researched in great detail over several different periods to come up with a modern day Lotus Flower which would celebrate the spiritual side of George's life.

On top of the gates stand the Fab Four ... no not the Beatles but the four Trustees who have dedicated their time to creating this wonderful project! The letters displayed by the Trustees spells PLDT from the front.

Today the Penny Lane gate stands proudly as the entrance into the Penny Lane Development Trust. An iconic gate that is loved very much by the tourists as well the local community.
