We are nearly down to the Westgate now and standing waiting for the gates to finish closing at the level crossing on the railway line.
On the right is a spectacular set of buildings whose roof line is probably over 400 years old. The building with the two pointed gable ends is the House of Agnes. A 16th Century house whose first floor bay windows were added in the 17th Century and the two ground floor bays were added in the 18th Century. The name `Agnes' refers to Agnes Wickfield, a character in Charles Dicken's David Copperfield.
Further down on the left here was a petrol station that's had a several occupants since ESSO pulled out. There are several small shops in this part of the city.
