The Bridgegate, Chester
The Bridgegate was designed by Joseph Turner and erected in 1782 to replace an older medieval gateway. On a marble tablet over the western postern, is the following inscription:

"THIS GATE WAS BEGUN APRIL MDCCLXXXII, PATTISON ELLAMES, MAYOR, AND FINISHED DECEMBER OF THE SAME YEAR, THOMAS PATTISON, MAYOR. THOMAS COTGREAVE, HENRY HESKETH ESQ., MURENGERS, JOSEPH TURNER, ARCHITECT."

On another tablet, on the south side:

"THIS GATE, HAVING BEEN LONG INCONVENIENT, WAS TAKEN DOWN A.D. MDCCLXXXII. JOSEPH SNOW, ESQ. MAYOR. THOMAS AMERY, HENRY HEGG, TREASURERS"
