Henry Reader Williams Clock Tower Crouch End Clock Tower & Henry Reading Williams

Monument: Henry Reader Williams Clock Tower

Inscription

{On the front above the (defunct) drinking fountain:}
Erected by subscription in appreciation and recognition of the public services rendered by Henry Reader Williams Esq. JP, to the district of Hornsey during a period of twenty-one years. June 1895.

The bas-relief of Williams is by Sir Albert Gilbert.

Site: Crouch End Clock Tower & Henry Reading Williams (3 memorials)

N8, The Broadway

There is a clock dial on each of the four facades, and they are all working - August 2004 anyway. Above each dial is inscribed "1895".

Behind the tower two trees have been planted, each with a plaque on the ground:
tree on right in the picture - Clock Tower centenary
tree on left:, behind the tower in the picture, F Neuner.

In April 2006 a local magazine was asking, with reference to the Ordinance Survey benchmark on the tower's west face, at the base, why it had been painted blue.

See the clock tower at Crouch End.
