Westbury College Gatehouse
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
In the late 18th century a Georgian house was built beside the gatehouse, and the only surviving parts of the original medieval colege buildings are a pair of round towers and a section of wall vsible on Trym Road and College Road.
The gateway stands 4 stories high, and the arch is vaulted in two bays. The gatehouse is topped with a parapet and corner turrets.
The gatehouse passed to the National Trust in 1907 but is leased to Holy Trinity Churchfor use as a meeting place. Regular opening hours, but arrangement must be made in advance to collect the key from the Parish Office nearby.
