Gatehouse Comments

Now catergorised as unknown non-antiquity but pervious did have a ? Motte label. Presumably the first part of The statement comes from Davies. Clearly this was never a motte but Rhuallt was a significant crossroads. A Castle Rhuallt at SJ083748 seems to be a folly but is not recorded in the HER.
