Fishergate Bar

According to the legend above the gateway Fishergate Bar was built in 1487. The blackened stone on the underside of the arch was caused by a fire in 1489 when the gates of the bar were set alight during the Peasants revolt against Henry VII. The Bar was bricked up shortly after and not re-opened until 1834.
