Clock Towers of England is a nationwide exploration of the intriguing buildings the Victorians and Edwardians built in great numbers, even after they were no longer strictly necessary.
Historian and author Kevin Newman investigates these interesting, sometimes forgotten, buildings and celebrates their architecture, locations, role in popular culture, and history. He explores their purposes other than being used to tell the time, and debates what exactly they tell us about our ancestors. He asks what the survival of these enigmatic structures tells us about Britain today.
With a fascinating range of examples, and lavishly illustrated throughout, this book examines a popular part of Britain’s architectural and social history.
