Sadler Street - Wells

Sadler Street - Wells
Sadler Street in Wells backs onto the Cathedral Green - hence the remains of the old gatehouse. The Great West Gate dates back to at least 1473 and would have formed part of a defensive wall surrounding the Cathedral Green.

It is now annexed onto a hotel (The Ancient Gatehouse Hotel). This is not a recent development with it being incorporated into the Mitre Hotel as far back as 1660
