Stourbridge Town Clock

It's probably the best known landmark in the town and was even made here! Built in 1857, the grade two listed town clock had a full restoration in 2007. The column was built at the Stourbridge Ironworks and was designed by engineer William Milward. for many years the clock was painted green (see photo) but for the renovation the decision was made to change the colour to dark blue and gold, the colours of the Stourbridge coat of arms.

William Milward was also responsible for rescuing the Agenoria locomotive, which after years of service was found dismantled and rusting in a field near the Pensnett and Kingswinford railway, where it ran for many years. The Agenoria can now be seen fully restored at the National Railway Museum in York. Please click images for a larger version.
