View of a street leading to the entrance of Rougemont Castle in Devon. This is a fortress built by William the Conqueror on Rougemont Hill, which is in the north corner of the walled town of Exeter. The print actually shows two entrances, the portcullises entrance, and to the left an early Norman gate house. This is actually one of the best preserved of its type. It was approached by a drawbridge across a moat. The print shows the simple round arched door way and on the second floor there are two triangular headed windows.
