Rougemont Castle Gatehouse

Joseph Farington's record of the castle gatehouse, drawn in 1810, published in Lysons' Magna Britannia (1822). The gatehouse belongs to William the Conqueror's reign; its gate was later blocked and a new entrance to the castle provided beside it. The tubs of plants reflect the use of the area outside as a Georgian garden. This is the earliest reliable record of its appearance.
