2022: Chris Odams contacted us to say that his father (who was in a long line of builders) told him that Chris's great grandfather, W. W. Odams, had constructed the steps (and presumably foundations) for this clock tower.  We cannot corroborate this but suggested we post the query here. We will forward any replies to Chris.
