The original entrance on the East Wing of the Palace. Originally there were two towers here onto which the drawbridge was lowered. The two vertical slots above the arch were for the drawbridge chains The stained glass window in St Michael's church next to which the plaque commemorating Adorne is situated. The plaque can just be seen on the left, reflecting the window.
