Copyright issues on an external site

Hi Hooligan,

We at ShoutWiki received a message from the user who had copied content from this wiki into without proper attribution. The person in question explained that it was a mistake and they've since removed the copyright-violating content from the page. Based on a quick glance at the page in question, this indeed appears to be true. As such, there's probably no need to mention this now-resolved issue on the Main Page or on the Watergate Street page, so I've removed the "Copyright Issues" sections from both pages. Please let me know if you have any questions about this.

Keep up the good work! --Jack PhoenixShoutWiki Staff (Contact) 19:12, 2 March 2016 (UTC)


Hello, I was wondering if you remember where you got File:Maingate1894.gif from? I research castle gatehouses and I've not come across this illustration before so I'd love to take a closer look, but I've run into a dead end. Any help pointing me in the right direction would be much appreciated! Richard Nevell (talk) 09:25, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

Hi Richard,

All I can see from my records is that I downloaded it in 2014. It is almost certainly out of copyright so feel free to re-use it. However, now that you mention it, the image cannot show the gstehouse from 1894, as the building in the background is the old Shire Hall and that wasn't there in 1894 (having been replaced by Harrison's new court building) - so the illustration must show the tower prior to the 1780's. I'm afraid there is nothing to see of the outer gatehouse today, as it has been built on by what is now the Military Museum - however while it existed did house another Richard, :) (II) briefly. The inner gatehouse - "Agricola Tower" - is a different matter - I just climbed up it the other day to see the view from the roof.

Any Castle gate-houses in North West Wales you need pics of? - I'm off there for a steam train holiday for a few days soon!
