Tyne and Wear HER(13529): Newcastle, Bailey Gate - Details
Newcastle, Bailey Gate
The original entrance into the 1080 castle by Robert Curthose was perhaps on the site of the Bailey Gate near the south-west corner of the 12th century keep and was approached by the street called Bailiffgate. Appears to have been the earliest of the principle entrances to the Castle.
