A town wall was built at the end of the 14th century. The section adjoining the harbour was constructed of stone, the remaining sides were wooden on top of an earthen rampart. There were two gateways from the harbour, the Fisher Gate and the Barbican. A larger barbican was built in the middle of the 15th century on the southern end of the town but this was demolished 20 years later.
