Gate with flanking
lodge and tower, to
north of Rose Castle
Gateway and flanking buildings. Early C16 for Bishop Kite, with mid C18
alterations. Large blocks of red sandstone rubble. Gateway through curtain
walls, with remains of Water Tower to left and lodge to right. Large segmental
arch with C16 carved stone panel, of rose in quatrefoil and corner shields,
above. Pedestrian pointed arch to right. Battlemented parapet. Former tower
to left has blocked chamfered-surround entrance which originally gave access to
an outer watch tower built over the moat. Wall reduced in height and now
gabled. Twin-gabled building to rear is an C18 gardener's storehouse with
sandstone slate roofs. Lodge to right is mostly demolished but its outer walls
form part of the curtain wall with an angle projection. Probably replaced an
earlier drawbridge gatetower referred to in 1479. See, J. Wilson, Rose Castle,
1912, pp85-6. Has G.V. with Rose Castle.
