Highbridge had a clock on the roundabout for many years but it was considered a tad unworthy. So, after a donation of some 17,000 was received from local fundraising, the local council approved a new clock to replace the concrete version. Indeed, that was known as 'the three-faced liar' as its faces often told different times.

The new clock is four-faced (even though one will only be visible to passing pedestrians) and was completed in time for the Diamond Jubilee. All efforts are now being focussed on replacing the uninviting brick walls in front of it. See ST3147 : Jubilee Stone for a memorial stone nearby.
