The Citadel Gate
The Citadel Gate
This old gate in Citadel Lane was the main entrance to the fort which was built here by the Cromwellian government in 1652. The fort was abandoned in 1660 when Charles II was restored to the throne. The buildings were dismantled in the early 18th century but this gate and large sections of the walls still survive. (Source: information plaque in the gate). The original gate was much higher than this photo suggests, as the ground level here has risen in height.
