GV II

Clock tower, erected as a gift to the people of Clapham by Alexander Glegg, mayor, 1905-6. His architect was Ewart Gladstone Millar, with clock (non-striking) by Gillett and Johnston of Croydon. Portland stone with grey polished Aberdeen granite base, 31 feet high and square on plan. Plinth incorporates bonze panelled door giving access to the winding mechanism, above which the stem has banded rustication and big quoins, with projecting cornices and clock set in frieze. Voluted top-knot with ball finial. Included as a local landmark, and for the strong, though contrasting, group it makes with the listed rotunda of the adjacent Underground station.
