This is the remaining medieval gateway in the town wall. It now consists of a wide entry with a flight of steps through a C17 house built in the wall. The rest of this house is Nos 6a and 6b, Sir Isaac's Walk (qv). The flight of steps is at the head of a broad passageway leading up from St John's Street; with houses (Nos 1 to 4) on each side closely abutting the building above the entry. The building is timber-framed and plastered, with a deep brick plinth each side of the flight of steps, the upper storey projects on the north side and the tiled roof is hipped back. Timbers are exposed in the roof of the entry. No 1 Eld Lane forms the east side of the entry.
The Scheregate forms a group with No 1 Eld Lane, The Purple Dog, 42 Eld Lane and Nos 1 to 4 (consec)
