One of Gravesend’s most striking landmarks, the portland stone Clock Tower stands over 18m tall and its four clock faces are each over 1.5m in diameter. The clock’s foundation stone was laid on 6 September 1887 at a ceremony attended by over 6,000 of the town’s residents in celebration of Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee. However, due to the length of time taken to raise the £1,097 public subscription required, the clock did not actually start to run until almost two years later.

On my first visit to Gravesend I was wandering around looking at this and that and then I saw this monument at the end of the street and I was totally taken aback. It was like Cleopatra's needle had been transported to Gravesend and then fashioned into a clocktower. It is quirky and seemingly both in and completely out of place at Gravesend, but is still lovely to look at. - David Cummings
