How lovely to see the lions guarding the Bargate repainted in their original colour.

Hopefully we will soon also see the shields above the archway restored and repainted.

Thanks must go to all those involved in the work of restoring the historic Bargate, much loved by residents and admired by visitors to the city.

It has been suggested in the past that the Bargate could be reconnected on the west side to the old town walls and maybe it is now time to give this idea serious consideration.
