One departing bar is heard (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

leaver

Here is my best explanation:

'one departing' is the definition.

'bar is heard' is the subsidiary indication.

'bar' becomes 'lever' (lever is a kind of bar).

'is heard' indicates a 'sounds like' (homophone) clue.

'lever' sounds like 'leaver'.

(Other definitions for leaver that I've seen before include "One departing" and "Person departing".)
