The Order of the Hospital of St John of Jerusalem - or the Knights Hospitallers - was founded during the crusades . These warrior priests set up forts and hospitals along the pilgrimage routes to the Holy Land. Members were of noble birth who guarded Christian sites and defended Palestine against Arab attempts to retake the land.
The Hospitallers settled in Malta in 1530. Having survived a siege by the Turks, they lived quietly until surrendering to Napoleon in 1798. The order was revived in 1831 and survives in the familiar guise of St John’s Ambulance.
The Gate was the entrance to the Priory and was built around 1148. The church was burned by Wat Tyler’s men during the peasant’s revolt and blown up in the reign of Edward V1.
Rebuilt and made into a parish church in the 18th century, it was once again restored after bomb damage in the blitz.
The church does contain the best late 16th century effigy in England: in alabaster to a Spanish knight of the order.
