Cycling around St. Albans is a joy, there is so much to see and admire.
Its a blocky building. To have an idea how it looked way back, here’s a photo from Wikipedia.
The gatehouse is the building on the top of the left hand side quadrangle. This is how the great cathedral looked before King Henry VIII did the dissolution business. Pretty big and huge, eh? Now of course nothing is left of any of the red roofed bits excepting the gatehouse and some little bits attached to it.
And a new lock has been fitted, man, the old keyhole is massive
And the door has been repaired…
lovely little piece of history..it must have seen quite a lot of people passing through its arches..fascinating..
