In 1987 excavations were carried out at the site of the old Sacristry buildings, which are situated to the north of Ely Cathedral, and form the southern frontage of the High Street. The Northern Range consists of a group of buildings with the Goldsmith's Tower at their western extremity, and continuing on eastwards: the Old Choir School, Ely Museum and the Sacrist's Gate.
The excavations have provided evidence for an earlier northern boundary between the town of Ely and the monastic precinct. The buildings are either Medieval in date or Victorian incorporating reused medieval masonry.
