Unfortunatly it didn't come out as I would have liked it to (as usual, due to parts) but I think I did OK. just look at the last image and imagine two menacing towers on either side :laugh:
Sorry about the image quality

I believe it is great!  the tutor style outcropping looks really good as do the vines on the side of the wall.  The door might be a bit small for horses or wagons to pass through but overall great job.

Great to have finally visit my neighbour! Thanks for the meat and mead! Very nice!

This gatehouse is great! The tudor really adds a alot to the whole building! I like the angle in the wall, making it harder to storm for enemy soldiers!

is it possible to have pics of the other side?

I really like this!  You've done a great job with the paneling and I really like the ivy along the walls.  Not a lot of gatehouses so far (Z's is the only one I can remember) and you've made an excellent one.  I may have to add this to my loooong list of MOCs to make.

This is a fantastic gatehouse! The tutor housing and the sloped wall are spectacular. :sweet:
I really like the detailed foliage too.

Great work!

Good job with the sloped walls!.  It does remind me a lot of a mini-version of the great gatehouse of Albion.  Really cool and very much our style!

Thank you for all your kind comments!

MickyB the city of Gruven has a trade route going through it, with a gate house on either side. the opposite side (supposedly) has a larger gate and the stables ext* are living there. (it was the biggest arch I had and I didn't have the parts to build it higher)    
De Gothia sorry about that I sort of destroy my creations strait after I photograph them.

Indeed the sloped walls are a great detail! Despite your part limit you've made a great and formidable looking fortification. I also like the way you've used the red plumes as flowers. This has the definitive Avalonian feel; well done!  :thumbup:

Nice build! The wall look's very solid. What is the name of the flower that's growing on your wall? :thumbup:
