This tower was built between 1275 and 1285 under Edward I as an advanced post of a door now destroyed, the iron gate. It was connected by a wall above which there was a walkway. This tower is made of two joined rectangular blocks which advance into the moat. It was partially rebuilt in 1679 before seeing its façade redone during the nineteenth century.

This tower is not open to the public.
