Piddletrenthide School: the mystery of the "missing" school gates (3)
These are the genuine C16 gates from the tomb of Lady Margaret Beaufort in Westminster Abbey that were transferred from the old school building to the new in 1999. There is a small plaque recording this event on the gate pier to the right. It is unfortunate that *English Heritage at one time seem to have confused these with the modern replacements that are now at the old school building. LinkExternal link. The two dates on the gate piers record the founding of the old and new schools. SY7099 : Piddletrenthide School: the mystery of the "missing" school gates (4)

*To be fair to English Heritage, their current online database entry for the gates does contain the amendment that they were transferred to the new school in 1999.
