News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

I'm not 100% sure peterchall but my 1927 & 1955 plans only show the one gate here so can only presume it had two entrances.

What is the gate to the right? It looks as if was larger and been reduced in size.
It's no use getting old if you don't get artful
