Micklegate Bar, York
The main entrance to the medieval city of York from London and the south, built between 1196 and 1230 on earlier foundations and restored in 1952.

The heads of many 'traitors' were hung from Micklegate Bar as a warning to others, including Lord Scrope of Masham (1415), Richard Duke of York (1460), the Earl of Devon (1461) and the Earl of Northumberland (1572). The last people to have the honour were the Jacobites William Connolly and James Mayne in 1746.
