|Description||Bridgegate was never issued by Micromodels.
When Geoffrey Heighway originally began to release the models of the gates of London, the liner notes included a list of the Gates. The last gate listed was Bridgegate, also known as The Traitor’s Gate, simply because of the number of traitors whose heads ended up residing on poles atop the gate. “Welcome to London! Please behave!.”
Technically Heighway did end up creating that model, however it would be the smallest of all the Micromodel gates. Bridgegate was so named because it sat atop Old London Bridge . At one point the bridge and the gate did collapse (as in “London Bridge is Falling down”) and it was rebuilt.
MicromodelsUSA has published a model of Bridgegate based on the sketches from Heighway.
