Park

GV II

Clock tower, 1888 (on inscription). Of red sandstone, brick and
timber. Square stone base with projecting angles, moulded plinth, and
recessed rectangular panels on four faces; the south facing panel has

an elaborate wrought iron support to a weather vane. Clock tower
donated by employees of the railway company.
