Overview

The Norman Gatehouse is located at the Rougemont Castle. It was built when William the Conqueror was at power. The original gatehouse was built from mud and then rebuilt with bricks later. With a story of princesses and their knights in shining armor, in 1136 the grandson of the original builder, Baldwin de Redvers, held it captive for Empress Matilda for a few months. The gatehouse is probably the earliest example of Norman architecture. The structure is about (2 meters) six feet high with two doors at the entrances.
