The North Gate

Back to Time Period
The North Gate

In contrast to the South Gate, the North Gate, which defended the less important route to Crediton and North Devon, was a much more modest affair, consisting of a small tower within the walls, lacking projecting towers. This view was drawn in the 1830s; it is far from clear how reliable it is, since the gate had been demolished two generations before.
