This tower was built in 1494 as part fortifications and as a home for the Governor of Portamouth. In 1584 it was converted into a gunpowder store the governor moving to the Garrison Church. In 1779 it was converted into a Royal Navy meat store until 1850. It was manned during World Wars and purchased by Portsmouth City Council in 1958-1960. It is now a popular wedding and function venue.
