The remains of the gate take the form of a two-centred arch with sandstone ashlar dressings and double chamfers, set within the precinct wall and facing towards the river. The rear arch is a wider, shallower two-centred arch built out of narrow blocks of sandstone set on edge. The precinct wall continues westwards from the gate to form the south wall of the west wing of the Anchor pub (PRN 09605g).
