The stonework of the clock tower was found to be in a very weak and unstable condition after an inspection by the Masonry Consultant. Weldon Stone Enterprises won the contract to cut back and reface all four sides of the clock tower and to rebuild the parapet.
Clipsham stone was chosen for the project due to its durability and character.
The contract was completed over a ten month programme, and used over 1,200 ft³ of worked stone.
