St Mary's Abbey Watergate

This two-storey wall is believed to have formed part of the watergate for St Mary's Abbey, York. It includes a cart arch, a smaller foot arch and three windows.

The door and window reveals indicate that the visible (standing) remains depicted in Image 1 formed the inner (Abbey-facing) wall of the building.

The riverside elevation either collapsed or was demolished at some point in antiquity.
