Not an explore as such so if admin feel it has no place here fell free to remove it.

Zero81 and I spotted this on our way to somewhere else and liked the look of it

and were intrigued. It is situated in the private grounds of a posh boarding school

for 8-13 year olds.

Info from the schools website.

Work began on 29 June 1883 and completed on 01 Oct 1884. The cost was £ 7980.

The height of the tower is 161 feet and it has three lower floor rooms, a sewing room

and a clock room. The clock is by J.B. Joyce of Whitchurch who still service it.

The tower can be seen from six counties. Features include four mosaic clock faces, a

sundial and a coat of arms.

The clock tower is part of a private estate and is not open to visitors except on

advertised open days.

On with the piccies:

That's beautiful, what's inside, I bet it's some serious stair porn, I just wonder if they've made them as nice as the outside. Lovely
