As far as Mowpin Lodge is concerned. I can only relate to the '60's to '80's.
I was on Standish Ambulance station at the time, & if we thought that we needed to use that gate for access, we had the key to the Mowpin Lodge gate on the Amb Station. So it appears (as far as I can recall)that the gate was always locked permanently, I can never remember it being open..
