    As a child living in Victoria Ave. I well remember playing in this Gatehouse. Sadly it was derelect by then (1950/53) but my mother who was brought up in Winchelsea Rd., told of visits to the estate( owned then I think by the Briscoe family) with her Aunt who was a Dressmaker & Corsettiere. These photos are a wonderful source of info. about a completely different way of life! Thank you

    I lived in Clifton road just off The Ridge....as a child in the 50s my mates I would play in Coghurst Woods and the gatehouse...the Gatehouse would be our Nottingham Casle if we were playing Robin Hood or it could just as easily become a 7th cavalry fort if we were playing Cowboys and Indians...I have great memories of Coghurst during the 50s .We were always playing there and Arvy Tarvy the fields which a joined the woods..I think there is a school on those fields now....
