The Clock Tower, Herne Bay

Spot the mistakes! This text is taken in its entirety from a local website.

There was no Boar war; the Boer war was in the 1890s


"The clock tower is the most striking piece of architecture in the town, which was built in 1837 to commemorate the men of Herne Bay who volunteered for the Boar war. The Bandstand is an ideal venue for those who enjoy café culture and is also a focal point for summer concerts, other musical events and children's entertainment. "


Another Web entry..." In 1837, Mrs Ann Thwaytes, a wealthy lady from London, donated around £4,000 to build a 75 feet (23 m) clock tower on the town's seafront. It is believed to be the first freestanding purpose built clock tower in the world."


Fot those who visit my pictures, thanks - at the moment, my broadband connection is very poor, soon to be fixed by BT - then I will be able to look at your images, and comment.

I have other shots of this, all withouth the woman - I prefer to see some life in a picture, so I chose this - would it be better without her, I wonder?
