Worksop Priory gatehouse, Cheapside, Worksop - Bassetlaw

Gatehouse, early C14, with a slightly later south porch containing what is believed to be the only surviving English medieval 'walk through' shrine. The gatehouse requires comprehensive repair, as demonstrated by a condition survey funded by grant aid from Historic England. An initial body of repairs focusing on the shrine, funded by a Repair Grant for Places of Worship, was completed summer 2016. Further repairs are needed to the interior, exterior stonework, rainwater goods and statues. Options for future uses and funding possibilities are being explored.
