Eastern half of the Outer Gatehouse to Wigmore Abbey, Adforton - Herefordshire, County of (UA)

Associated with the remains of a late C12 and C14 abbey. The Outer Gatehouse comprises two buildings, of which this is the eastern building. It is without a roof and in very poor condition. Survey work to inform conservation is required. Structural assessment by Historic England in 2011 indicated that elements of collapse were likely; some collapse of the outer skin of stonework has since taken place.
