The Perfect Way to Add Medieval Style to Your Residence
Gates were an important element for any castle because they protected the weakest points – openings in the castle walls. To allow villagers and traders to come and go freely, walls needed to have entrances. To protect those vulnerable openings during times of attacks, heavy gates were created to prevent enemies from breaking in. Wood was often placed vertically and horizontally and then reinforced with iron panels and bolts.
Solid Wood Entrance Gates
Imagine the skill needed to build Harlech Castle back in 1289 – a project that took years to finish by hand. Made with local stone in a concentric design, its massive gatehouse was protected by three portcullises and two impressive doors. Harlech Castle is considered to be one of the best examples of 13th century military architecture, and is still standing today on part of Harlech Dome in Wales.
