Grants Clock


There is a clock with 2 faces located on the Promenade in Whitley Bay, close to the junction with South Parade. The clock stands on a large column, set in a semi-circular viewing area, overlooking the Central Lower Promenade and beach. The clock was unveiled by Councillor James Hamilton Grant on the 12th April 1933.[1] The column was originally painted white, and the clock was described as a 'little sister' to St Mary's Lighthouse, which can be seen in the distance.
