7/82 Gateway to Hadlow Castle


Ornamental gateway to Hadlow Castle (q.v.). Circa 1820, probably by George

Gateway is set back from the street facing north west and is built between the
contemporary North Lodge (q.v.) and South Lodge (q.v.). It is an impressive

buttresses and rise with steeply-pitched finials the tops of which have broken
