The gate at Castle Black, as seen from the outside. It’s not really supposed to represent a defensive gate, as such, but I assume it’s there to give them some options as to shooting from different angles. Crew tents and the catering truck were out on this side of the gate, while the other side features the training yard/courtyard of the castle.
You can read more about it in Part 5 of my set visit report.
