Medieval Postern Gate (Tower of London) 3D Model
Processed from 92 photos (taken with a Nikon D5300 and kit lens) on medium in Agisoft Photoscan Professional. Been a while since i scanned something that wasn’t sitting on a Turntable.
Photos were taken from a raised walkway which encircles the postern. Unfortunately I couldn’t do a complete scan (which would have required trespassing).
A Plaque overlooking the posetern reads:
“This medieval postern gate gave access to the City of London from the east. It is the only known surviving example of a large medieval gate tower in the City wall. The construction of the subway provided the opportunity to excavate and conserve the remains.
Three arrow loops in the multi-angular tower commanded the approach. The Postern was also protected by two wooden gates and a portcullis, the groove for which may still be seen
The fine quality of the masonry suggests that the postern might have been built from the late 13th century onwards, by the royal masons who were carrying out major modifications to the Tower of London”
