The Water lane


Water lane

The Rue de la Rive is the arbitrary name given to the space drawn between the two ramparts on the south side. The outer rampart runs along the Thames, and is only separated from it by a ditch and a relatively wide quay on which the tourists stand.

The street on the bank is rather narrow and long, the ramparts measure, on this side, 140m and are still followed by 70m more. In width, it is about 6m, but it is variable. The bloody tower, for example, encroaches on the width of the street, and likewise the gate of the traitors takes a part of the width of the street to ensure the descent towards the quay, through a door.
