This tower formerly occupied a mid position in the south west stretch of the town wall, immediately south of the Royal Southern Yacht Club premises. The corner is clearly indicated by the remains which incorporate a postern gate, presumably giving access to the Woolbridge and possibly (though not probably) identical with that known in the early middle ages as Wool Gate. It was also known as the Square Tower. The name was also applied in early Tudor times to Bugle Tower.
