Fodor's Review

One of four castellated gateways originally built in the early 14th century using stones taken from the original settlement at Old Sarum, this is the north passage through the wall that surrounds the Cathedral Close. The mullioned windows over the archway mark the site of a small lock-up jail where anyone who committed offences within the Close were taken.
