Mickelgate Bar

A view of Micklegate Bar looking out from the city, a less imposing view than that from outside looking in. The arch remains, however the barbican was removed in in the 1820s as were the gates. Local legend claims the gates were taken down as they were no longer able to be locked at night since the gatekeepers children had lost the keys whilst playing with them!


  1. I'm rather glad the gates are gone and that people are free to pass through.

  2. Doesn't it look amazing against that blue sky!
