The Watergate in position

A Tom Kent copy of an unknown original. Date guessed.

[Join my campaign to get the Kirkwall THI to replace the Watergate across the road as here, rather than daftly in a wall that has obviously been knocked down and rebuilt anyway, as is evident from picture - Steven]

Comments:
Only one snag, it would make the road inaccessible to traffic.

[Smart cars and bikes would be fine :-) Steven]

I would say this is earlier than 1900. Take a look at the plaque on the wall next time you pass Steven. It gives the date I'm sure but I can't remember it offhand. Even my memory does not recall everything.
