Church Wall

Church Wall is an extension of the walls built to protect the Cathedral from cannon fire, it has 2 watch towers on either side and would have had a platform for soldiers to stand on. Each of the bastions would have had similar watch towers but these 2 are the last to survive, they would have provided shelter from the rain for soldiers on duty. In this wall there is a sally port which was used by defenders to make surprise attacks against attackers.

The Derry Walls
The Derry Walls are the most complete set of town walls in Ireland and the largest ancient monument in Northern Ireland. They were built by the Honourable the Irish Society between 1613 and 1619 to protect the new plantation city of Londonderry after the previous attempt to establish a settlement was destroyed. Like much of the old city fortifications across the world they now stand as a tourist attraction with many people coming to the city to walk along the walls.
