a fine timberframed (Tudor- style?)door-house and a beautiful, fluffy cloud above it!
Bill Phillips: Lower Brockhampton dates back to the late 14th century Philine. The construction is wattle and daub

Now THAT'S a fine entrance, Bill. One could even live above it, I should think?
Bill Phillips: There was probably someone living over the gatehouse at one time Ginnie

This is a little more authentic Bill, the would wood have been lime washed and this shows that the wood has been scraped clear of the stuff.
Bill Phillips: I imagine that the Victorians painted the wood black.
Beautiful clouds Bill, and a sweet little building. They go together well.
Bill Phillips: It is the gatehouse at Brockhampton Manor Pauline
Looks as though the black boards were just painted on or painted over.
Bill Phillips: The Victorians had a thing about painting old timber frame buildings black and white. This is the colour, more or less what it would have been back in the 14th century when it was built
You've captured a lovely sky to go with this old gatehouse, Bill
Bill Phillips: It was a glorious bay when we went there Tom. So it wasn't last year!

A very attractive building; I wonder how old it is? Looks good against the sky, too.
Bill Phillips: Late 14th Century Alan

Did the gate keeper live in it or was it decorative only.
Bill Phillips: I think originally probably yes but I don't know
Certainly a very fine gatehouse isn't it, thank goodness it is still there in one piece.
Bill Phillips: Along with the rest of the house. Have you visited Brockhampton Brian? IKf not I can recommend it

This looks to have a similar design to the houses on the Shambles in York. Once again, you have found a wonderful sky to set it all off
Bill Phillips: Same era Anne, late 14th century
This building is a jewel Bill!
Bill Phillips: The manor house is even better Richard
