The Abbey Gate stands opposite the town hall, and is the entrance to Abbey Square. The Abbey Gate was built in the 13th century, and was rebuilt in 1591. The room above the gateway was used as a court for the pleas of the abbey and a registry. It was used to hold George Marsh in during his trial in the Lady Chapel of the cathedral.
The Abbey Gate was constructed of sandstone. It has a large outer semi-circular arch. Inside is the pointed main entrance arch. There is a small gate of pedestrian access. And on either side of the main entrance arch two niches.
