Exchequer Gate
SJ 051-657 Denbighshire Wales

Exchequer GateExchequer Gate was originally a late 13th century stone two storey gatehouse, founded by Henry de Lacy, earl of Lincoln. Built in 1282-95, it stood adjacent to the Red Tower of Denbigh Castle and was one of the two entrances of the medieval town walls. Sadly it only survives as excavated foundations, which are also partly obliterated by a road but it seems to have the same twin towered configuration of the Burgess Gate.
