13 + 14/351 The Clock House
Harbour Clock house. 1817. Design by Benjamen Wyatt and George Louch,
altered by John Rennie. Ashlar with slate roof. Two storeys, with segmental
3 bay arcades to ground floor wings, plat band, cornice and parapet, with
stacks to end left and end right. Central projecting tower with 2 storey
arched opening, the band acting as imposts. Triglyph frieze and cornice
to hipped roof with square clock turret with dentil cornice and open
arcaded and balustraded belfry with weather vane. Three metal casements to
each wing and central Diocletian window on 1st floor, tripartite glazing
bar sashes on ground floor. Central panelled door and sidelights in round-
headed surround. Boarded 2 storey doors in end elevations. Rear elevation
identical to front, but without central Diocletian window. Interior: fine,
simple interiors with trussed rafter roofs. Originally fitted with brass
solar meridian line, stolen mid 1970's. Stone domed clock room in central
tower. The changing upper floor levels indicate that Wyatt's original
design was for single storey wings - Rennie added the upper floors. Now a
museum and R.N.L.I. station, formerly a store house and offices. (Busson
