Derry City Walls, Cannons Overlooking the Ship Quay
These seven, recently-restored cannon generally date from the seventeenth century, having been sent over from the City of London in 1642. The two nearest to the Shipquay Gate bear the Tudor rose-and-crown emblem and one has a date stamp of 1590. The cannons are mounted on replicas of mid-seventeenth century block carriages.
City walls - Derry / Londonderry
Originally there were only four entrances (or Gates) into the walled city i.e. Bishop's Gate, Shipquay Gate, Ferryquay Gate and Butcher's Gate - arranged in a cross pattern with the Diamond as its centre. Later were added New Gate (1789), Castle Gate (1803) and Magazine Gate (1865). The original Gates were themselves re-built in the 18th and 19th centuries.
