I believe there is a gate there now.
Thats a good photo DTease, a not so little, gatehouse. Must have seen a good few carriages & visitors go by in its time.
I read somewhere Helen, that the original gate was opened by a wheel inside the gatehouse so that the gatekeeper didn't have to go out in the rain.
Rumour has it, Helen, that there were so many comings and goings by His Nibs that when the Gatekeeper retired he had a bald patch where his forelock used to be!
