The North Gate serves as a gate to get in and out of The Castle.


The Gringe family lives in the North Gate's gatehouse (but usually, only Augustus Gringe and his wife, Theodora Gringe). The Bridge Boy also works there from sunrise till sunset.[citation needed] The toll can be paid by a silver penny to a half crown. The money is then given to the Castle Treasury, where Gringe's salary is paid and the rest of the money used in repairing the Castle wall and the bridge.[citation needed] The North Gate is raised at nightfall by the Bridge Boy and at the rest of the day, remains lowered for Castle inhabitants or travelers.[citation needed]


Beside the gatehouse also resides the Cafe La Gringe, which Mrs. Gringe manages. A small attic rests at the gatehouse, where Lucy Gringe was temporarily kept.
