Porta Dextra

The view east from Bootham Bar steps looks up High Petergate which leads to the Minster. Bootham Bar was built on the site of the Porta Principalis Dextra, the northwest gate of the Roman fort hence the name of the nearby shop. The pub down the street is named The Hole in the Wall and although it currently has a picture of St Mary's Abbey on the sign I think the name may have more to do with it's proximity to Bootham Bar.


  1. Like the peek-a-boo style of this pic!

  2. What a great photograph, Deb. How on earth did you get everything in focus. Wonderful!
