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 are being explored.
