...the beholder now looks down a narrow street, on each side of which here and there are dwelling-houses preserving their Elizabethan aspect, and at the further end of which, looming up like the background to a stage scene, stands, in all the grandeur of centuries of decay, the ancient East Gate of the town – all, indeed, that remains of a building ornamental and strong in its birth and dignified in its death.

As on the West Gate there is a chapel to St. James, on the East is one to St. Peter, built in the reign of Henry the Sixth. [pp20-21] (Henry VI reigned from 1422 to 1461)
