An original copper line engraving of Dunnington (Donnington) Castle Gateway, near Newbury in Berkshire. Published in 1784 by Alexander Hogg in the New British Traveller. It was engraved by John Peltro.

This framed antique print shows a view towards the north side of the substantial two-storey gatehouse ruins, all that remains of the original C14th castle. The gatehouse had stone string courses and was carved with gargoyles and a vaulted passage. The castle was the site of the Second Battle of Newbury in 1644 and was demolished two years later by the Parliamentarians.

This print is mounted in an ivory conservation quality mount, surrounded by a new light walnut and gold wooden frame with acrylic glazing. The print itself is in a good condition and has been lightly cleaned to remove some of the long-term effects of foxing, light and water damage and to help conserve it for the future. Price – £35.00.

Approximate dimensions are:

Mount window: 185 x 125 mm
