Tixall Gatehouse the survivor of a failed Estate

Pass this quirky structure at least 6 times a week to/from a round of golf. Asked permission about a year ago to fly over but was politely declined at the time. I respected their decision … for a year! Its a holiday let so I waited until there was no booking on the day I flew from the adjacent road. Interesting history with this one as it was one of the captive placements of Mary Queen of Scots (albeit for 2 week only) before her eventual demise at Fotheringhay Castle, where she became a few Kgs lighter!
