Kingsgate Castle

Kingsgate Castle
Kingsgate Castle on the cliffs above Kingsgate Bay, Broadstairs, Kent was built for Lord Holland (Henry Fox, 1st Baron Holland) in the 1760s as the stable block of his nearby country residence Holland House (his former London residence was renamed with the same name)

The name Kingsgate is related to an incidental landing of Charles II on 30 June 1683 ("gate" referring to a cliff-gap) though other English monarchs have also used this cove, such as George II in 1748. The building was later the residence of John Lubbock, 1st Baron Avebury, but has now been converted into 31 flats.

Best viewed full screen please.

MY THANKS TO ALL WHO VISIT AND COMMENT IT IS APPRECIATED.

What a sight! What a history! And what a cool place to see! You know, when I was once the naive little thing of years past, I'd have flipped out to hear that castle has been demoted to an apartment building. Yet, with some age comes some wisdom and turning that castle into flats is a GREAT IDEA!!! Instead of said castle crumbling to ruin because the upkeep is impossibly expensive, the castle can instead be used and modernized into a totally awesome place for many people to live! I hope that more castles are turned into living accommodations!
