The Court Gatehouse, Staunton by Redmarley

Recent Photograph of The Court Gatehouse (Staunton by Redmarley)

I'm uncertain whether this collection of buildings is in fact the former Gatehouse to Staunton Court, but it looks like it to me. Note the opening, reminiscent of doorways to Tithe Barns, which had to be tall to allow carts piled high with hay through.

Outside, two trusty steeds wait for their masters to return, rather more patiently one imagines than the four-legged variety might have done in the days when they were the fastest means of transport...
