In the Middle Ages the vast majority of European cities had walls around them. This was partly for 51 defensive(变化) reasons but another factor was the need to keep out anyone regarded as undesirable, like people with contagious 52 diseases. The Old City of London gates were all 53 demolished by the end of the 18th century. The last of London's gates was removed a century ago, 54 but(变化) by a stoke of luck, it was never destroyed.
This gate is， in 55 actual fact, not called a gate at all; its name is Temple Bar, and it marked the 56 border(换词了，原文boundary)between the Old City of London and Westminster. In 1878 the Council of London took the Bar 57 down(变化), numbered the stones and put the gate in storage 58 because(变化) its design was unfashionable it was expensive to 59 maintain and it was blocking the traffic.
The Temple Bar Trust was setup in the 1970's with the 60 intention(变化) of returning the gate home. The aim of the trust is the 61 preservation of the nation's architectural heritage.
Transporting the gate will 62 mean(变化) physically pulling it down, stone by stone, removing and rebuilding it near St Paul's Cathedral. Most of the facade of the gate will probably be 63 replaced, though there is a good 64 chance that the basic structure will be sound. The hardest 65 job of all, however, will be to recreate the statues of the monarchs that once stood on top of the gate.
