The classic view of the city from the wall close to the railway station. In the middle distance is Lendal Bridge over the River Ouse; the skyline is dominated by the Minster.
York City Walls :: SE6051
York has, since Roman times, been defended by walls of one form or another. To this day, substantial portions of the walls remain, and York has more miles of intact wall than any other city in England.
There are 6 gates through the Walls - Bootham Bar, Monk Bar, Walmgate Bar, Micklegate Bar, Fishergate Bar & Victoria Bar.
