Type Clock Tower
Taken from Cadw report: 'High Victorian Gothic tall square tower with chamfered angles; rubble with some freestone dressings. Pyramidal slate roof in 2 stages with open bellcote and weathervane; pyramidal roof lucarnes to each face. Moulded eaves with machicolations. Round clock faces to each side set in pointed arched frames with linked hoodmoulds and stringcourse. Scalloped corbels to angles with 3 trefoils between; 2 arrowslits to each face. Heraldic band with set-offs below and diagonal buttresses with punched trefoil gablets. Double cusped arched openings to N and S sides with hood mouldings and nook shafts; blocked to S, boarded double doors to N.'
Cadw report: 'It originated in a legacy by Captain Brown for a clock for the church tower. This idea was expanded by the executors to include a town clock, public hall and corn exchange but only the former was built; cost £600.'
