A lost landmark off the south end of Bugle Street, almost certainly a jetty for loading wool, as indicated by postholes found in off shore excavation here in 1949.
It was almost certainly approached by the still partly surviving Wool Gate postern on the west side of Bugle Street and south of the Royal Southern Yacht Club premises.

Woolbridge Tower
Strictly speaking, this was the tower on the east of the Woolbridge, as it is termed in the terrier of 1454. It was situated opposite the Wool House and was destroyed in the early 19th century.
