City Walls (Canterbury)

[An image showing City Walls]The City Walls are an impressive part of the history of Canterbury.

As in the case of Colchester and Norwich, they form a very real ring around the heart of the old town, strengthened by the presence of a modern ring road just outside the walls.

The City Walls were originally constructed during the Roman period, but were rebuilt in the 14th century.

There is a lengthy stretch with a walkway on top, as at Chester, Chichester and York.

Just inside the walls lies Canterbury Castle, and at the end of Canterbury's High Street is the imposing West Gate.
