Rye House Gatehouse (Hoddesdon)

Rye House Gatehouse is a historic building at Hoddesdon in Hertfordshire.

It is situated in Rye Road.

The gatehouse, which is moated, was built by Sir Andrew Ogard in 1443, and is a fine example of early English brickwork.

The Rye House Plot was hatched here in 1683. The intention was to assassinate Charles II and his brother James.

The house has been restored by the Lee Valley Regional Park Authority.

Nearby is Rye Meads nature reserve, run by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds.
