Fishergate Postern Tower

Geoffrey H.
Four-storey tower built shortly after 1489 when the Fishergate Bar was destroyed in the insurrection. Also known as the Talkan Tower, which it replaced. Postern first documented in 1440, and also known as Saint George's Postern. Probably reset in the 16th century, it has a pointed archway of four orders of 14th century character.
