Christ Church Gate, Canterbury
Like the rest of the Cathedral, the Gate has been repaired and restored numerous times.
The Gate suffered damage and the main statue was destroyed during the English Civil War in 1643. The statue was not replaced until 1990, even though the rest of the Gate was restored in 1660. In 1803 the original towers were removed but were replaced in 1937.
Over the past few years, there have been ongoing preservation and restoration efforts on the Gate and the rest of the Cathedral.
