SX4754 : Derry's Clock Tower

taken 12 years ago, near to Plymouth, Great Britain

Derry's Clock Tower
Derry's Clock Tower
This clock tower was built in 1862 and was at the heart of pre-war Plymouth and a meeting place for people. It used to be said that 'Marriages may be made in heaven but in Plymouth they are arranged under Derry's Clock'. Now it sits in a quiet backwater of the city centre sandwiched between the back of the Theatre Royal on the left of the photo and another rare remnant of pre-war Plymouth, The Bank Public House which was originally a bank. Behind The Bank can be seen the Council Offices tower block.
