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 with extensive tree growth penetrating parts of the structure. 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.
