Castle Gates House in Shrewsbury

Situated at the entrance to Shrewsbury Castle and the Shropshire Regimental Museum is the Grade II* listed Castle Gate House. The house was originally located on Dogpole, but was dismantled and re-built in its present postion in the 18th century by the Earl of Bradford.  Whilst many of Shrewsbury's 660 listed buildings are tradional black and white 'magpie' half timbered houses, Castle Gates House is all the more eye-catching for it's black and yellowed appearance.  As such, it is easily recognisble to visitors entering Shrewsbury's town centre from Castle Street.
