A map showing the location of Mole's Town on the continent of Westeros.

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.

Despite their oath of celibacy, members of the Night's Watch are frequently known to slip off to visit the brothel in Mole's Town.[1]

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Mole's Town is much the same. 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".
