Chertsey Gate (Rochester)

Chertsey Gate is a picturesque mediaeval gateway in Rochester in Kent.

It is one of a number of interesting gateways in this ancient city on Watling Street.

It can be found in the High Street, and leads into the precincts of Rochester Cathedral.

Formerly known as Cemetery Gate, it features in Charles Dickens' novel "The Mystery of Edwin Drood" under the name Jasper's Gate.

Chertsey Gate was constructed in the 15th century, as an entrance into the monastic precincts. Its appearance is made more unusual by the weatherboarded house that was added on top in the 18th century.
