The Porta or Walpole`s Gate, after Prior Walpole, dates
from the 14th century.
Several yards further down the Gallery you will come to the Ely
Porta or Walpole Gate. This was once the main entrance to the monastery
and through it have passed travellers, pilgrims, monarchs and other nobility
over many centuries. The gate was begun in 1396, completed in 1417 and
is now part of the King's School, a public school.
