The gates of the former Salvation Army children's home, Strawberry Field, which inspired John Lennon's 1967 song, 'Strawberry Fields Forever'. The current gates are replicas, the originals were on display in The Beatles' Story museum at Albert Dock, Liverpool, as of June 2017.

The gates can be seen from the road. The site is owned by the Salvation Army, which is proposing to develop it - including a small museum dedicated to the song and its inspiration.
