York Watergate

Categories: Property

See Norwich Place/York House for more about the history of this site. 

In 1874 the construction of Embankment Gardens left this watergate high and dry. In 1893, the watergate having fallen into decay, the LCC acquired and preserved it, with a new roof.  Re-roofed again in 1962, it is now managed by Westminster City Council.
