Clock Tower Refurbished

  Clock Tower

The Town Council has recently undertaken a refurbishment and redecoration of the Clock tower which is situated over the Yacht club facing the basin.

The tower, which is said to be older than Big Ben was in poor repair but the replacement of old boards and posts and new painting have left restored it to being a landmark feature of the town.

The clock faces will shortly be reset and the familiar chimes will be heard again in the town.
