A FOLLY....?

I pass this gate often as it is situated in Alum Chine and is only a few minutes walk from where I live.  I always think of it as a bit of a 'Folly'. The gate leads to some steps which ascend to the back of a property at the top of the Chine. 
Interestingly there is no need to go through the arch and gate to reach the steps.....just walking around the side of the stone archway is just as easy, which makes the gate and archway seem like overkill, hence me comparing it to the follies that you might find on a large country estate....decorative but not serving any real purpose.

... and still, passing through the gate feels like an adventure, a challenge.

please have a good sunday.
