MANY of us walk past it every single day, but how much do you know about Weymouth’s Jubilee Clock?

The structure is Grade II listed and it was built in 1887 for the Jubilee of Queen Victoria – marking her 50th year on the throne.

The clock’s listing on the Historic England website reads: “The gift of Sir Henry Edwards. Cast- and wrought-iron on stone base. The large 4-faced clock under a square ogee cupola on a broad moulded base is set on a square shaft with deep frieze with anthemion enrichment and flared cornice.

“Each face of the shaft carries 2 panels, with the Queen's head and the Weymouth arms respectively. The shaft is flared out to 4 plinth panels under segmental pediments; on 3 faces inscribed "Erected to commemorate the Jubilee of Her Majesty the Queen 1887. John Groves, Mayor", and on the seaward face "Jubilee Memorial Erected by Public Subscription. The clock being the gift of Sir Henry Edwards".

“The 4 faces are linked in an octagon on octagonal plus a circular moulded base, set to a shallow multangular stone base. A florid but characteristic enrichment to the sea-front, boldy coloured.”

The clock was restored earlier this year, with the aim of taking it back to its original beauty and colours.

Leader of Weymouth and Portland Borough Council Jeff Cant said at the time that it is a ‘historically important landmark’ and ‘one of the defining symbols of Weymouth’.
