Bath City Walls

Medieval Wall The last part of the wall that surrounded Bath. Located in Upper Borough Walls opposite The Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases BA1 1RL. The picture shows the outside of the wall, so outside of the city limits.
Bath was summoned - in bravado but the herald was shot dead by one of the Somerset Militia manning the walls
The Eastgate is the last survivor of the gates to the medieval city of Bath (the north, west and south gates were demolished 1754-76). It originally led to the city mill and the ferry to Bathwick.
