Clock Tower graffiti

Have you been up and seen the graffiti at the top of the Grade 1 listed medieval Clock Tower? Georgina, our Fundraising Support Officer, climbed the 93 steps of the Clock Tower and took photos of some of the graffiti etched into the stonework. It is one of the sights the new museum and gallery will help highlight, along with the mediaeval history of the town that it represents.

This summer why not climb the steps to enjoy the view and look at the graffiti? As you clearly can’t deface a listed building you might consider having your name graffitied on the Honours Boards instead in the new museum and gallery. More information can be found here.

The Clock Tower is open from 10:30 to 17:00 at the weekend from the end of March to the end of September, last admission 4.45pm. A display on the “150th Anniversary of the Restoration of the Clock Tower ” is currently on show and will remain in the Clock Tower over summer. Open days are staffed by volunteers from the St Albans and Hertfordshire Architectural and Archaeological Society and the St Albans Civic Society.
