Pre Worboys signs often relied on wordy plates located below the red warning triangle to get their message across. In this case the standard wording seems to have been 'Gate Across Road'.
Worboys Report Sign
Following the Worboys Report, most warning signs received symbols within the red triangle for quick and easy recognition. However, no symbol for 'Gate' was ever created, possibly to avoid any chance of it being confused with the symbol for Gated Level Crossings. Instead, the word Gate was printed along the base of the white space inside the red triangle. The signs are frequently paired with a plate below giving the distance to the gate.
The Irish do not appear to have a specific warning sign for gates, although they do have gated roads in places.
