Fishergate Postern Tower

This 4-storey tower with postern (small gate) attached was built between 1504 and 1507 and formed part of the medieval defences of York

Now a Scheduled Ancient Monument, the tower has stood empty for decades but the Friends of York Walls hope to bring new life to this building as a community facility and museum. They will also use the tower as a base from which to care for and promote the walls of York.
