Castlegate 1972

1972 was the last date that a fragment of the castle remained clearly visible above ground to all passers-by, although for entirely understandable reasons, very few probably appreciated its significance. It can be seen in the foreground of this image, projecting from the collapsing crazy paving lining the slope above the bus shelters on the south side of Castlegate.
