Cheers.

I thought they might be entrances to cellars but wasn't sure. Strange that there are only two of them.

There were some gents toilets embedded in the banks along with a few cellars, H S Bagshaw Ltd, 235 High St., metal workers, used to store some metal in one of them.

They open into cellars under the Banks Roadway.

I was wondering if anyone knows the purpose of these doorways set into the side of St Margarets Banks in Rochester High Street?
They are only present in the section between Bath Hard and Nags Head Lane. The only other one fronts the Medway Little Theatre much further along. Image via Google Street View.
