St. Annes Gate History  
     

St. Ann's Gate, built around 1330, is one of the entrances to Salisbury Cathedral, the largest Close in England. Bishop Richard Poore, in 1219, succeeded in gaining permission from both king and pope to build a new church on the present site of the City of Salisbury. It was hoped that building on a new site would end the clashes between the Royal garrison and the church, which were in too close proximity in the old city of Sarum, just up the hill. New Sarum, as Salisbury was originally called, stands east of the River Avon and unlike most other English towns was laid out in a grid-plan of streets whose blocks became known as "chequers"...
