Inscription on Reigate Castle Gateway
This photo shows the inscription above the entrance to the former Reigate Castle which was demolished in 1648. The inscription which dates from 1777 says the following:
save the memory
William Earl Warren
who in old days dwelt here,
and was
a loyal champion of our liberties
from perishing
like his own castle
by the ravages of time,
Richard Barnes
at his own expense
erected this gateway
in the year

On the other side of this gateway is this inscription in Latin.
