View of a gatehouse on the estate of Lord Holland at Kingsgate on the Isle of Thanet. This shows the side facing the sea. On the tablet facing the house there is a Latin inscription, 'Olim Porta sui Patroni Batholomai. Nunc Regis jusssu Regina Porta vocor. Hic excenderunt Ca. II R. Et ja, Dux ebor. 30 Jun. 1683'. The gate used to be under the protection of St Bartholomew. However it was renamed during the reign of Charles II, according to the command of the King and the Duke of York, as 'Regina Porta'.
