Whitefriars Gate, Stamford
A plaque reads "This gateway is the only remaining portion of the House of the Whitefriars 1285-1539. Richard II held a council and lodged here in 1392. Queen Elizabeth was entertained here in 1565 by the Lord Treasurer Burghley".
The Whitefriars attribution, however, is challenged LinkExternal link
The gate forms part of the boundary to Stamford hospital, and lies on the route of the Macmillan Way.
Opposite the gate (behind the camera) a plaque on a wall denotes the site of the Greyfriars Monastery.
