Details

ROCHESTER THE PRECINCT TQ 7468 NW 7/187 Deanery Gate and Gatehouse (formerly Sextry 24-10-50 Gate) GV I Gateway (originally leading into the precinct of the former pirory of St Andrews) with house attached. The house, largely C18 and C19, incorporates medieval work. Both components are here described seaprately. (1) The archway and room above. Thearch and moulding profiles are identical with those of Chertsey's Gate (High St, qv). Probably mid C14 (ie c.1334 when the precinct wall was erected). Random rubble walls to ground floor with jettied timber-frames and rendered 1st floor. Kent tile roof, hipped with gablet to S. Ground floor contains gatekeeper's room (entered from within the archway) which abuts Gandulph's Tower (cathedral, qv). 1st floor room now forms part of the adjoining Deanery Gatehouse. Both inner and outer arches are 4-centred and moulded. No windows to ground floor. Upper floor to W with 2 12-pane hornless sash windows; one similar window to E. Interior: 1st floor with jowelled posts, integral (or early) wall planking; plain crown post roof. (2) The house (Deanery Gatehouse). Brick (with remnants of timber framing); double-depth plan, each range separately gabled with end stacks. Framing post embedded in rear wall of front range suggests that a timber-framed single-depth building continued in series with gatehouse. Thks was refurbished and the rear range built in the mid to late C18, and later modifications were made in C19. 2 storeys and attic. Front (W): rendered; regular 4-window range; 2 3-light flat-roofed dormer casement windows with weatherboarded sides. Otherwise 12-pane hornless sashes under segmental window arches and in reveals throughout. External shutters to ground floor. Right of centre doorway with wooden doorcase with panelled pilasters, plain reveals, pediment on console brackets; 5-panelled door. 4 steps with wrought-iron plain railings. Rear (E, garden): 4 window range with 2 2-light hipped dormers. Sash windows as front. Interior: open-well stair with turned balusters and round-section newels (that continue along landing); rear range: panelled ground-floor room with (to N end) chimney piece with shouldered arch, egg and dart mouldings and frieze with festoons, all flanked with round-headed alcoves with key- pieces and 6-panelled doors. Note: this building was originally listed as Deanery Gate (Grade I, ref 1/7) and Deanery Gatehouse, which included the room over the gate (Grade II, ref 1/7B). The present listing refers to the entire building.
