near to York, Great Britain

York: Micklegate Bar
York: Micklegate Bar
One of the original 'bars' or gatehouses on the city walls controlling access to the city centre, Micklegate Bar was the most important one because it was the route for those arriving from the south. The top floors date from the fourteenth century and the lower section is a couple of hundred years older than that.
