- "I know for a fact that some of the officers go to that brothel in Mole's Town."
- ―Samwell Tarly
Mole's Town is one of the few villages located in the Gift, the strip of land immediately south of the Wall which is under the jurisdiction of the Night's Watch, meant to supply the forces that guard the Wall. It is the closest instance of "civilization" to the Wall, populated by smallfolk and not members of the Night's Watch. It is located along the Kingsroad about half a league south of Castle Black.
In the booksEdit
In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Mole's Town is much the same, located along the Kingsroad about half a league south of Castle Black (a little less than two miles, or almost three kilometers). It is a small village, though it is bigger than it looks, because three-quarters of the village's building-space is located below-ground for protection from the cold. The handful of small shacks on the surface are just entrances to the main living spaces below.
Due to the underground location of Mole's Town brothel, the black brothers refer to their visits to it as "digging for buried treasure".
