Micklegate Bar
Micklegate Bar
Seen at its best in winter afternoon sunlight but spoilt in appearance by the mesh of fairy light cables, the Bar is one of the gates of the York City Walls (a Scheduled Ancient Monument).
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.
