In the 13th to 15th centuries this was a gate at the lower end of the walled town. A 15th century reference equates it with the Watergate. Other references are ambiguous, but another 13th century entry appears to locate the it near the west side of 'Bolestrete' (Bull or Bugle Street) at its south end. It may be that prior to the walling-in of the town on the seaward side (mid 14th century) this name was applied to a different structure - probably to the Bull Street Gate.
