Entrance to Canterbury Cathedral precinct.
VVe need not subjoin any detailed architectural descriptions. The Cathedral is pleasantly situated in an extensive court, surrounded by gardens, cemetery, the deanery and prebendal houses, and what remains of the archiepiscopal palace, and of other buildings connected with the Cathedral, among which may be mentioned the Staircase (Fig. 569). The Precinct Gate (Fig. 566) forms the principal entrance to this court.” (p. 154)
The crest of King Henry VII is on the gateway, along with other Tudor symbols including the rose. The original statue was destroyed (probably at the Reformation).
