Barbican (Sandwich)

The Barbican is a historic feature of the old Kent town of Sandwich.

An entrance to the town across the River Stour, the Barbican was built in the 16th century, and has rounded chequered bastions on the North side, beside the river.

In the early 20th century the rest was built up picturesquely, to convert the gate into a toll gate.

Not much traffic passes through the Barbican today, and it is impossible for large vehicles. Traffic from the Isle of Thanet to the North approaches via a ring road.
