Morpeth Clock Tower

Tower In Morpeth, Northumberland

Charming working clock in the town centre of Morpeth.

Standing at over 18m (60ft) high, the Morpeth clock tower was constructed between the years 1604 - 1632.

It is constructed of medieval stone which may make it look older than it actually is. The stone may have come from a gatehouse that previously stood at the west end of Oldgate or from the ruined Newminster Abbey.

The tower has served a number of purposes including a gaol and also a meat store.

A belfry was built in 1706 to accommodate a peal of six bells that were originally intended for the Parish Church of Berwick-upon-Tweed.

Thanks for checking out this place on the Fabulous North! I do enjoy a wander out in to the countryside trying to find hidden gems that not many people know about. You can't beat a rogue Pele tower up a remote hill or a mysterious stone circle or a stunning waterfall secluded in a forest.
