The Buckland Gate, Hay Gate, or the North Gate, were names for a gate at the northern end of the hedge known as the High Hay.

Leaving the Shire across the Brandywine Bridge, a traveller would come to the northern end of the High Hay, where it ran beside to the road to meet the River Brandywine. In the Hedge at this point was a guarded gate that led to Buckland, the Eastmarch of the Shire.
