Clock Tower, Margate
Clock Tower, Margate
The clock tower was constructed to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria in 1887 but was not complete until two years later. The design was by Mr. Henry Arthur Cheers. The construction was finally handed over in a civic ceremony on the 24th May 1889. The tower holds five bells and above these is a time ball which rises just before 1pm and drops on the hour.
