Temple Gate was here 1240-1810. see this drawing by Marcus Henry Holmes 1819 http://museums.bristol.gov.uk/emuweb/php5/media.php?irn=26310 drawn from the front door of the Saracens Head of 1606, looking north across the former 52 feet wide portwall moat to the city gate, 12 feet wide. The postern gates either side were punched through the 7 foot thick city portwall in 1734 when the Norman arch was knocked out and raised and re-fenestrated in the early georgian classical style. The city coat of arms adorned the outer side whilst the arms of george 2nd (1727-1760) adorned the inner side.
