TQ5174 : Crayford Clock Tower

taken 9 years ago, near to Crayford, Bexley, Great Britain

Crayford Clock Tower
Crayford Clock Tower
The Clock Tower was built in 1902 to celebrate the coronation of King Edward VII, and also to enclose a sewage lift station. It's good to report that the clock was showing the correct time. On the right is the entrance to the Tower Retail Park from Crayford Road.

On the pavement on this side of the road is a Transport for London (TfL) Low Emission Zone (LEZ) warning sign. The LEZ is enforced with surveillance cameras, and became effective for lorries, motor caravans, and horseboxes exceeding 12 tonnes in weight from 4 February 2008. Unless a vehicle in this category reaches the Euro III emissions standard, or can claim exemption, the charge is 200 per day with a penalty charge of 1,500 if the payment is not paid within 28 days. Vehicles first registered as new with the DVLA on or after 1 October 2001 are assumed to meet the Euro III standard, so they would meet the LEZ emissions standards. More information is on the TfL site here LinkExternal link

I am given to understand that the establishment to the left of the clock tower is some form of eating outlet.
