Mr Monkey walked past the ruins of the Roman tower at what used to be the east corner of Eboracum when it was a Roman fortess. Then the wall turned left and went down to Layerthorpe Bridge. In medieval times, the bridge was fortified and was next to a large lake called the King's Fishpool, made when William the Conqueror dammed the River Foss. Now the bridge isn't fortified and there's no lake.
