Moor Gate

Building  To 1761

Categories: London Wall, Architecture

This gate was made in the London Wall early in the 15th century to allow access to Moor Fields, marshy moor-land outside the wall. By 1606 the area had been improved and became London's first public park, still open to the public as Finsbury Circus gardens.

Temple Bar was the last gate to be demolished, in 1878. The others were: Aldgate, Aldersgate, Bishopsgate, Cripplegate, Ludgate and Newgate.
