CASTLEGATE 1. ---------- 5096 Tickhill Castle House SK 5992 6/2A

II* GV

2. Probably C17, and perhaps built after the Parliamentary slighting of the Castle in 1646. Possibly incorporates medieval remains, traditionally those of the chapel of St Nicholas, founded by Eleanor of Aquitaine; but no such remains can be confirmed without excavation. Early or mid C18 refronting. Early C19 alterations, mainly internal. Hammer dressed limestone facade, remainder rubble, including westernmost bays (recessed) of facade. Slate roof. Three storeys. Moulded strings. Two gabled projecting bays to front, and rear wing to north-east. Six bay facade on 2:1:2:1 rhythm. Sashes with glazing bars in plain raised C18 surrounds, except for eastern projecting bay, which has a segmental bay on 2 floors, with tripartite sash with glazing bars on ground floor; and small Venetian window above it on second floor. East side has 2 round arches of uncertain date, huge buttresses with 3 lean-to outshuts between. Rear elevation, including west side of north wing, retains original C17 fenestration with mullion and transom windows, some blocked. Interior. Of the C17 there remains one stopped chamfered stone doorway in the hall, and a plaster frieze which may be of C17 date in the dining room. In the west wing there is, on the first floor one room with a chamfered surround without stops; and, on the second floor, one room with a chamfered central joist (moulded stops), and a fireplace with a straight-shanked depressed arch, chamfered, with moulded stops; and a further room with a chamfered central joist (straight stops), and a similar fireplace but with plain stops. Of a slightly later period is a bolection moulded chimney piece on the ground floor. The staircase and most of the chimney pieces are early C19.
