England’s only medieval clock tower repaired

St. Alban’s Clock Tower, a monument which was built between 1403 and 1312, has undergone restorative work.

The district council replaced ageing wooden louvre window slats and re-pointed much of the ancient brickwork.

A full survey of the medieval building, which was built between 1403 and 1412, was also carried out to secure its long-term future.

District archaeologist, Simon West said the clock had also been repaired.

“The clock wasn’t working, the automatic winder had gone so we had to have that repaired too.
