HIGH STREEET (west side) The Barbican


GV I Probably of late C14 origin. Consists of two round towers, which have a base of ashlar. Above this the ground floor is chequered work of stone and flints with loop windows. Entry is via a semi-circular timber barrel roof between the towers and tiled over. The first floor has been modernised; the south east tower has been fronted with weather-boarding, the north west tower with rough plaster almost like roughcast. Conical tiled roofs. On the town side of the towers are two modern or modernised buildings of rubble and brick, and on the first floor weather-boarding joined by a hipped tiled roof over the whole. A small two-storeyed modern house has been built on to north side of the north west tower and is now occupied by the toll collector.

The Barbican, No 4 (Crispin Inn) and Nos 4 to 12 (even) Strand Street form a group.
