The extant outer gatehouse of Lullingstone Castle. Originally believed to have been built in the early or late 16th century, it now seems that it may have been built earlier in 1497 by Sir John Peche as part of his new house. The south-west turret was rebuilt in the 1960s after being damaged in the Second World War.The gatehouse is brick-built and rectangular in plan with polygonal turrets attached to the outer face. There is machicolation and a castellated parapet around the whole of the gatehouse. The outer side faces west and has a four-centred brick carriage archway which retains its original ribbed double 20 panel doors of 20 panels. The inner side has a similar moulded archway.
