GV II

Clock tower. 1902. Designed by J Donkin of Bournemouth, carved work by Harry Hems & Sons, contractor EP Bovey. Erected by public subscription to commemorate Richard Mallock, M.P. Yellow sandstone on a local grey limestone plinth with grey limestone dressings. Gothic style. Triangular on plan with flying buttresses; traceried panels to each face and a conical cap with a crocketed finial. The lower stage has round-headed moulded recesses under gabled dripmoulds: one recess contains a door with stained glass; another a 2-light window with stained glass and the third contains a memorial plaque. Ellis notes that the original design was more elaborate and included a drinking fountain. 3 lamps originally lit the clock faces, but were found inadequate and were replaced with luminous dials in 1924. INTERIOR: Not inspected but may contain features of interest. (Ellis CA: An Historical Survey of Torquay, 2nd edition: 1930-: P.198-199).
