High Petergate

The city gateway of Bootham Bar lies at the western end of High Petergate, within the city walls.

It stands on the site of a Roman gateway called Prima Porta Dextra and was the main medieval entrance into the city from the north through the Forest of Galtres. Parts of the building with its four bartizan towers date from the 11th century, but the part facing into the city was rebuilt in 1719 and 1832. In 1832, the outer extension of the gateway or ‘Barbican’ was removed. In historic times guards were posted here to guide travellers through the Forest of Galtres.
