Access to Baileygate House

Baileygate House is accessed through a passage door which leads on-wards to the rear garden and yard known historically as “Nurses Yard”. The house itself is thought to have been variously occupied over the past 240 years by the town’s millers and tradesmen. It was even part of the Convent which was housed in the main over the road where the Cookie Jar Hotel now stands.
