Bargate Southampton. Of the seven gates which formerly gave entrance
to Southampton only two now remain. Of these the finest is the Bargate
which contains Norman work. It was originally defended by a drawbridge
over a moat. On the north side are two semicircular towers through
which side arches have been cut for the convenience of pedestrians,
and between which is a fine projecting front supposed to have been
added in the reign of Richard II. Rd. No. 594375
