The medieval priory of St. John was once home to the Knights Hospitallers, who sent men and money along the pilgrim routes of Europe, a team of nurses trained to aid the troops injured in the Crusades. The buildings were demolished during the reign of Henry VIII, and all that remains today is St. John’s Gate and the Norman crypt. The gate was originally built in 1504 and heavily restored in the 1800s when it served as the Old Jerusalem Tavern.
