The Bar is the ancient remnant of Beverley's Northern Toll gate, which defined the Northern limit of the town. Inside the city city side of the Bar the bi-annual horse fair was held on the street within the bar while the bi-annual sheep fair was held in the street without the bar. Bars were built in a number of cities in England - like an ancient DART managed crossing or the M6 Toll - in the 12th and 13th centuries. North Bar is the only survivor in Beverley. It is a Grade 1 listed building and it is worth walking under and enjoying some of the finer details in paintings, and portcullis grooves which it offers for those who take a moment to enjoy reaching back Eight centuries in history. Built originally in the early fifteenth century for the princely sum of £97.11 pence Beverley could make more of this.
