ROUND TOWER The Round Tower, so called in 1454, started as a freestanding dovecote built in the late Thirteenth Century. In the mid Fourteenth Century when the adjacent town wall was built, the back of the round dovecote was demolished and the front heightened to form a half-round tower. The honeycomb construction of the original nesting boxes is still visible in the base of the tower. Subsequently the tower was used as a house in the late Eighteenth Century. Part of a brick domestic fireplace or oven survives.

FRIARY REREDORTER The Friary Reredorter was built shortly before 1373 as a dual-purpose building providing toilet facilities for the friars and strengthening the defences of this part of the town. A tall square tower, mounting two guns in time of war, it projected beyond the town wall allowing the main drain to discharge into the town ditch. Access from the Friary Dorter, or dormitory, was by an elevated walkway across the roadway called Back of the Walls. The Reredorter went out of use in the Sixteenth Century and was converted into a dwelling in the late Eighteenth Century.

FRIARY HOUSE stands on the site of the Southampton Franciscan Friary. Founded in AD 1233, the Friary played an active part in the life of the medieval town. In 1538 it was closed as a result of King Henry VIII's dissolution of the monasteries. It lay derelict until John Brissault built a sugar refinery here in 1740. This was later converted into a warehouse which was destroyed by bombing during World War II. Southampton City Council archaeologists excavated the site in 1986 with the support of British Telecom who also provided this plaque and the mural.
