Historical Examples of meeting post
The heel-post and meeting-post are socketed into cast-iron uprights, which also receive the ends of the horizontal beams.
The depth at the heel-post is 22 feet, and at the meeting-post 35 feet (see woodcut, fig. 19).
Under each gate, near the meeting-post, is placed a wheel, which supports part of the weight.
