Paper Mill Yard lies just outside the medieval city limits. These were defined by the City Walls which formed a 2 1/2 mile (4km) defensive barrier around the city. They included 12 gates, one of which, Conesford Gate, stood here until 1794, guarding entry into Norwich via King Street. All of the medieval gates were removed around this time because they were considered too expensive to maintain.
