HISTORICAL NOTE: the castle built by Roger of Salisbury
c1118-39 was probably to one side or the other of Mill Lane,
and reportedly encroached on a graveyard 'a stone's throw from
the abbey church'. After the acquisition of the castle in 1216
by the abbey, the outer court was extended, and it is possible
that the gateway of the outer court was at the junction of
Abbey Row and Mill Lane.
