NOTEBEME TOWER On this spot stood Notebeme's Tower, part of Southampton's medieval defences. The paving below reflects the outline of the tower which was semi-circular. The tower was probably built in the late 14th century and helped defend the town quay and the southern walls. The base of the tower, still present beneath the new building, was originally washed by the sea at high tide. The tower is thought to be named after Isabella Notebeme, who leased it from the town in 1428.
