Tonbridge Pizza Express Clock

Tonbridge is a market town in Kent, with a castle and the River Medway running through it. The riverside building in the photo below overlooks the castle and is the home to a Pizza Express restaurant. The building has a clock tower with two clocks in. The words 'Smith Sectric' is shown on the face of one of the clocks.

Can you spot the clock tower and clock? The bridge runs over the River Medway.

Close-up photo of the clock tower. This clock does not show the maker's name on it's face (nor does it show the correct time).

I took this photograph from the other side of the river (castle side) and the second clock in the clock tower is visible.

The second clock shows the name: 'Smith Sectric' on it's face. This clock also has the wrong time.

Royal Tunbridge Wells Millenium Clock

The Royal Tunbridge Wells Millenium Clock is five meters high and is made of steel. It is located in the town centre in an area called five ways.

The clock was designed by local sculptor Jon Mills. He has designed a number of other steel clocks including a clock in Selsdon, Croydon.

Location: Five Ways, Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent. The clock looks a bit like a giant spider!


The clock has four faces, but the left one in this photo isn't working.

Royal Tunbridge Wells is more commly known as Tunbridge Wells. It is in Kent and about 30 miles from London. Tunbridge Wells should not be confused with Tonbridge which is another town close by. My next stop in the day will be Tonbridge, so more photos to follow.


I posted a photo of Jon Mill's Selson clock last year. Here is the link: www.masterclock.co.uk/2009/01/selsdon-clock.html
