The Erpingham Gate
The Erpingham Gate
This Grade 1 listed gateway is one of two leading from Tombland into the Cathedral Close and dates from 1420 (restored in the 19th and 20th centuries). The central arch consists of three orders of mouldings with two bands of figures and is the work of Norfolk stonemason Thomas Hindley. The gate was erected for Sir Thomas Erpingham, the leader of the archers at the Battle of Agincourt (25 October 1415) and a benefactor of the Cathedral. The church tower seen in the background is that of St George in Tombland > LinkExternal link.

The narrow flint house adjacent to it (at right) used to be the gatekeeper's house and is currently occupied by the Norwich School's assistant headmistress. During the 19th century it was referred to as the Bursary House because a priest was stationed there whose task it was to write down the names of any priests who were seen to arrive late for work, and subsequently fined.
