Greyfriars Gate, Stamford - South Kesteven

Part late C14 or early C15, restored with substantial late C19 additions. The lodges and chamber are no longer used. Some evidence of historic structural movement is visible. The chamber over the arch and south lodge suffered water ingress and the north lodge roof decayed beyond repair. Roofs have now been replaced and repaired, masonry repairs have been carried out and the building is secure. However, there is not yet a firm plan to re-use the building.
