The round tower at the east end of the South Town Wall was strengthened in 1541 to take the mechanism for an anti-shipping chain which anchored near the South Blockhouse on the opposite side of the River Hull. There were three chambers over the chain house. No evidence of the building now remains. (PastScape)
