Clock Tower, Grange-over-Sands


The Clock Tower is a prominent landmark in Grange-over-Sands, located on the junction of Main Street and Church Hill. The tower is constructed of locally quarried limestone and sandstone from St Bees. It was provided by Sophia Deardon, a local benefactor, who presented it to the community on the 4th of December 1912. The Clock Tower replaced an earlier construction, which was removed when St Paul's Church was extended. It is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England.
