Cotlestone Manor and Ightham Mote: Gates at Iron Acton Court and St. Albans

Cotlestone Manor and Ightham Mote: Gates at Iron Acton Court and St. Albans

Memories of the Duke of Monmouth and Sedgemoor are recalled by the very fine outer gateway in Cotlestone Manor House (bottom left) in the " rebel " country. Two poor wretches caught after the battle were hanged here. The gate and gateway of Ightham Mote (bottom right), belong to an ancient red-brick, stone and timber grange that lies within a few miles of Sevenoaks and date from the reign of Henry VII. The gateway to Iron Acton Court, Gloucestershire (top right) leads to what was once a manor house and is now a farmstead. The Court can trace its history further back than Elizabeth's days. The gatehouse to the old monastery at St. Albans (top left) blends Norman and Perpendicular into a harmonious whole.
