RYE HOUSE GATE­HOUSE was at­tached to a for­ti­fied man­sion that was the stage for the Rye House Plot of 1683. An ex­trem­ist Whig group plot­ted to kill King Charles II and his brother as they re­turned from the races at New­mar­ket. The plot was foiled and nine men and a woman were sub­se­quently ex­e­cuted. You can find out all about it in the pre­served gate­house.
