Gateway, Carisbrooke Castle

British Isles Genealogy | Isle of Wight

Gateway, Carisbrooke Castle.-This noble gateway tower was erected by Anthony Woodville, Lord Scales, in the year 1464, and is still in good preservation. The outer gateway was erected in the time of Queen Elizabeth, when a great extension of the grounds enclosed was made.
"The battled towers, the dungeon keep,
The loop-hole grates where captives weep,
The flanking walls that round it sweep
In yellow lustre shone." (Scott).
The old massive doors have been removed recently and replaced by a lighter structure.
