Notes about this historic site

1 The Eastgate was one of the three main gates of Warwick. Probably reconstructed in early 15th century, when the chapel of St Peter was built above it (PRN 1945). It has a wide arch spanning the original roadway and a smaller arch for pedestrians to the N. The gate was again altered and refaced in the late 18th century; it was probably at this time that the diversion to the S was constructed.
2 Built before 1426. Plain and heavy gate with pointed tunnel-vault.
