There are 5 gates in the wall: High Street Gate, St Anne's Gate, the Queen's Gate and St Nicholas's Gate are all original. A fifth gate was made in the 19th century to allow access to Bishop Wordsworth's School which was located inside the Cathedral Close. There is a room located above St Anne's Gate and is where the composer Handel wrote several works whilst staying there.
