Field House Farm
The new gates replaced old wooden doors and have been much admired by local residents and visitors to the Cathedral. The gates are on the bank of the river Severn and the area is often deep in water during winter floods. The gates permit the free flow of water through the archway in times of extreme flood.

The triangular roundel design is taken from the Bishops coat of arms.
This photograph was taken during the autumn floods of November 2000 from within the arch - water depth approx 6 feet and rising!
