Inner Gatehouse

INNER GATEHOUSE: This stone structure is itself like a
small fort. The southern portion is only about 15’ high,
plus battlement; the rear part is some 30’ tall, plus battlement.
There are arrow slits in the southern section of
course, and along the walls of the 20’ wide, 10’ high
passage through to the north. This passage slopes upwards
towards the inner courtyard. The heavy gates
are doublebound with iron and spiked. There are six
guards on duty at all times (two inside the gateway, two
on the lower battlement, two on the upper), plus one officer
on call (see below). No visitor is allowed beyond
this point except by invitation or unless he or she has
special permits.
