St Peter's Square, Ruthin
The clock tower at the centre of Ruthin town square was built to commemorate "the private worth and public service" of Joseph Peers, who was Clerk of the Peace for Denbighshire for 50 years. LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) Beyond the clock, to the left, is the Seven Eyes, formerly the Middleton Arms, named for Sir Hugh Myddelton who brought water to the City of London by financing the construction of a river to connect the springs of Amwell and Chadwell to the city, in the 1620's. For this he was made a baronet - Sir Hugh Myddelton of Ruthyn; there is also a statue to him near the terminus of the new river, at the corner of Upper Street and Essex Road, Islington.
