Full Description

This stretch of Wall has been rebuilt many times. Many of the most dramatic changes were due to the coming and expansion of the railway – a pair of arches were made in the Walls north of Tofts Tower to give access to the original York railway station, and its goods facilities, and two road arches were installed as part of the development of the new railway station
outside the Walls. Within the ramparts, air raid shelters were introduced during the Second World War.
