Clock Tower

"The Clock Tower which is one of the best known landmarks in the City. Built in 1881 at a cost of £200(€250, $320), the Gothic style granite clock provided a useful social amenity both for the wayfarer and the local community."

The sun came out for a little yesterday so we drove in to take this shot.

Thank you for all your comments and viewings of my Reflection Thursday entry.
