TF62SW ST ANN'S FORT
610-1/1/163 Watergate of St Ann's Fort
(Formerly Listed as:
Portions of the Town Wall in St.
Ann's Street with remains of North
Watergate. 1570, rebuilt 1626 and 1778, abandoned by 1839.
Brick. South face shows 2 depressed arches and part of a third
to the east, blocked with C19 brick. On the west end of this
is the springer for a brick arch running south, so the plan
presumably accommodated an inner vaulted chamber or
carriageway. Extending east is a length of contemporary brick
wall, much mutilated, with, on the north side, a plaque: G.B.
& Co 1875. The north side is built out and contains 2
barrel-vaulted passageways which would have emerged through
the blocked arches on the south side. This was the watergate
to St Ann's Fort rather than a north gate in the town walls.
