Probably of late C14 origin. Consists of 2 round towers, which have a base
of ashlar. Above this the ground floor is chequered work of stone and flints
with loop windows. Entry is via a semi-circular timber barrel roof between
the towers and tiled over. The 1st floor has been modernised; the south east
tower has been fronted with weather- boarding, the north west tower with rough
plaster almost like roughcast. Conical tiled roofs. On the town side of the
towers are 2 modern or modernised buildings of rubble and brick, and on the
first floor weather-boarding joined by a hipped tiled roof over the whole.
A small 2-storeyed modern house has been built on to north side of the north
west tower and is now occupied by the toll collector.
The Barbican, No 4 (Crispin Inn) and Nos 4 to 12 (even) Strand Street form a group.
