Members of the Friends of Dover Castle have a tour of Kings Gate
Chris Pascall gives Friends of Dover Castle a special tour of Kings
Gate. Informing us of the importance of Kings Gate, its barbican and how its
defences worked. About the trebuchet and the warfare of the siege of 1216.
Officers had windows with a curve at the top. Ranks just had a square window.
The outer gate could be left open so to entice the enemy in.
When inside they would find themselves trapped in a killing field.
Unable to move forward due to the inner gate closed and
unable to retreat due to rest of their army rushing in.
