Conservation Works Planned for St. Albans Medieval Clock Tower

The Grade 1 listed building, built between 1403-1412, will be shrouded in scaffolding for approximately 10 weeks so that a survey of it's condition, along with the replacement of wooden slats and some pointing work, can be undertaken.

Cllr Sheila Burton, Portfolio Holder for Culture and Heritage at St Albans City and District Council, said: “The Clock Tower is a wonderful medieval building that contributes greatly to our historic City. As the owner, the Council is making every effort to ensure that it is properly preserved for future generations to enjoy.”
