The Clock House, Royal Harbour, Ramsgate - Thanet

The harbour clock house of 1817 designed by Benjamin Wyatt and George Louch and altered by John Rennie. Originally designed to tell "Ramsgate time" and fitted with brass solar meridian line. Now largely out of use. Masonry has fallen on the seaward side and there is cracking in the masonry elsewhere. Plans need to be developed to see the building repaired and brought back into a sustainable use.
