Monument Type: City Walls
Double Bastion occupies the south-west corner of the layout of the walls and, following removal of surrounding 19th-century housing in Nailor’s Row, is one of the most prominent parts of the monument and the site of one of the best known cannon known as ‘Roaring Meg’. The bastion is separated from the rampart walkway by a low stone plinth wall and, during the 19th century, was planted as a private garden.
