Copthorne Close Gate

Tower on the Town Wall – Copthorne Hotel

Not so much a work of art, more a memorial to something past.  When they were building the Copthorne Hotel it was realised that this was on the site of one of the corner towers of the original Town Wall.  The piling of the Copthorne Hotel straddles the line of the Town Wall which crossed the Close to the water’s edge and was pierced by the Close Gate.
