Historic 19th Century Wendover Town Hall Clock Tower Restored

"Whilst the scaffolding was up as part of the overall refurbishment it made perfect sense to restore the dials as well.” - Martin Butchers, Technical Sales Engineer

Built in 1842 as a market hall and jail, Wendover Town Hall is one of the most distinct and recognizable buildings in the area.

The 58ft tall building, now used as tourist information and parish council office, has had its dials restored as part of a clock tower refurbishment.

Earlier this year Smith of Derby Clockmakers completed a full dial restoration, including the paintworks, hands and dialworks, to ensure the clock dials looks good for years to come.

They will shortly begin work installing a new clock autowind system to keep the clock automatically wound.

Martin Butchers, Smith of Derby's Technical Sales Engineer said: “The clock tower is a fascinating heritage site and focal point, so it was important to make sure the clock dials were looking at their best, particularly whilst scaffolding was in place for the clock tower restoration.
