SJ4066 : The door for the Kaleyards Gate

taken 10 years ago, near to Chester, Cheshire, Great Britain

The door for the Kaleyards Gate
The door for the Kaleyards Gate
This ancient gateway through the city walls was created in 1275 to allow the monks easier access to their gardens in the Kaleyards outside the walls. The gate was closed every night at 9pm for over seven hundred years until the practice was discontinued recently, however, the warning sign still remains. Note how the door has been repaired at the bottom to prolong its life. See alsoSJ4066 : The Kaleyards Gate and SJ4066 : The Kaleyards Gate from outside the city walls
