A pair of timber gates that stood at the original Wembley Stadium are to go under the hammer later this month.

The Royal Tunnel Gates span approximately 16-foot by 16-foot and were originally put in place when the north-west London venue was first built back in 1923.

After relocating to the new venue, alternative security measures such as metal gates will no doubt have been used to keep spectators safe.

Estimates suggest that the gates will fetch between £5,000 and £10,000 at Sotheby's when they are sold by architectural charity The Brooking Trust.

A spokesman said: "Regrettably it is the size and weight which negates their retention in the collection.

"It is with sadness that they and other pieces are being released."

They revealed that the gates had been in the charity's possession for the past 11 years, but it has not had any success in finding a way to display them.
