Outer Monastic Gatehouse. C14 and C15 fragments. Pieces of moulded ashlar and
rubble-stone. Outer archway: west jamb and springer of the main segmental arch
survive; within this is possibly the springer of the pedestrian entrance arch,
re-set. The north wall extends west of this opening for 5 metres, and has C12 and
later medieval carved stonework re-set into it. The inner archway of the gate-
house is represented by the lower part of its east chamfered jamb. The interval
between the two arches is 2.5 metres.
