An Act for enabling the Commissioners of the Pavement of the City of Canterbury to improve and alter the Line of certain Streets, called Palace Street, The Borough of Staplegate and Northgate Street, from the Entrance into the Archbishop's Palace, in Palace Street, to Cold Harbour Lane in Northgate Street aforesaid, within the said City of Canterbury and the County of the same City, and the County of Kent. 22d June 1825

The Statutes of the United Kingdom of Great Brain and Ireland 1807-1868/69


The last suburb is that of Northgate, without the walls; the houses are numerous, but of an inferior description, being occupied chiefly by the poorer classes; near the city wall, in Duck Lane, there is a spring called St. Radigund's Bath. 1838 directory



On the other side of Northgate Street, immediately opposite the entrance to St. John's Hospital, is another old gateway, which leads to the ruins of the priory of St. Gregory, also a foundation of Archbishop Lanfranc, intended for secular canons, whose duty it was to administer spiritual comfort to the poor of the hospital, and to officiate at the burial of their dead. These ruins have been converted into private houses, which are occupied by laboring people. 1845 AA


The Axe which beheaded Anne Boleyn. A friend of mine has excited my curiosity by stating, that in his school boy readings of the history of England, he learned that the axe which deprived Henry VIII's second wife (Anne Boleyn) of her head was preserved as a relic in the Northgate Street of Kent's ancient citie, Canterbury. I have written to friends living in that locality for a confirmation of such a strange fact; but they plead ignorance. Can any of your numerous readers throw any light relative to this subject upon the benighted mind of Philip West. 1853 NQ
