This photograph is of the gatekeeper’s cottage at the entrance to the Westwood Pasture.
Built in 1856 in the Gothic style as rent free accommodation for the neatherd, it is one of two remaining gatehouses of the original six. The other stands in York Road, opposite Pasture Terrace.
Only freemen of the town were allowed to pasture their animals on the Westwood, the grazing was controlled by the electing of Pasture Masters and is still in existence today.
