A sketch in ink of the ribs over the gateway to Dunstanburgh Castle near Dunstan in Northumberland. This is perhaps the most substantial surviving part of the 14th-century castle, with its three-storey drum-towers to either side. The gateway was actually closed by the castle's second owner, John of Gaunt, in the late 14th century. He built a small inner bailey, with a new, smaller entrance to the north.
