Mr Monkey jumped off the wall to look at Fishergate Bar. This is used to have a tower and a barbican, just like the other gates, but it was badly damaged in a riot in 1489 and blocked up for 400 years. Back on the wall, Mr Monkey looked towards Castle Mills Bridge, which actually is a bridge even though it looks like a bit of road.
