SU4729 : Westgate

taken 8 years ago, near to Winchester, Hampshire, Great Britain

At the top of Winchester High Street is Westgate. Until the early 1960s, vehicles used to pass both ways through the central arch. The pub beyond is also called the Westgate. It is considerably newer but probably more run down than its namesake.

There was a gate on this site from Roman times, but the present structure is 12th century, with later additions. It was later used as a prison and has been an archive store and museum since the late 19th century.
