The City Wall by John White Abbott

John White Abbott's view shows a length of the city wall in Southernhay as it appeared at the beginning of the 19th century. This stretch consists of medieval wall with projecting towers at intervals, strengthened and in places rebuilt during the Civil War of the 17th century. The doorway giving access to the Bishop's Palace garden would not have been allowed in the middle ages.
