College Gate

April 2011

College Gate, originally called Cemetery Gate, is the original for Jasper's Gatehouse where cathedral organiste John Jasper lived in Dickens' The Mystery of Edwin Drood. In Dickens' time there was a pawnbroker's shop where the road to the right passes now. The gatehouse itself looks very much as it did in Dickens' time. The interior was modernized prior to 1930.
