Abberley Clock Tower
Abberley Clock Tower
Abberley Clock Tower was built between 29th June 1883 and 1st October 1884 when the topping stone was laid by the architect, James Piers St Aubyn. The clock tower was built by John Joseph Jones as a memorial to his cousin, Joseph Jones who had left Abberley Hall and many acres of land in Worcestershire to him. The tower is 161 feet high and is visible from six English counties. The tower remained in the Jones family's ownership after Abberley Hall was sold and became a school in 1916. The tower was eventually sold to the school in 1939. As well as a clock the tower also has a sundial just visible below the clockface in this picture.
