Berkhamsted Castle | Derne Gate

Berkhamsted Castle

Derne Gate

This is the site of the Derne Gate (back gate) and accommodated the two bridges that spanned the inner and outer ditches. This exit was more convenient for hunting parties making for the great park and the Common beyond. On the outer bank is a small patch of flints which may have been part of the foundations for the outer bridge
