Bondgate Tower, Bondgate Within, Alnwick - Northumberland (UA)

The east gate of the former town wall, built circa 1450 by the second Earl of Northumberland. Consists of a recessed central portal between two projecting semi-octagonal towers. The main defects relate to damage from high-sided vehicles passing through the central portal. Further impact of a similar nature could cause a serious collapse.
