Local History

South Norwood’s Clock Tower is made from cast-iron and was erected in 1907 to mark the golden wedding anniversary of William and Eliza Stanley. William Stanley was a skilled architect who designed and founded the first trades school - Stanley Technical Trades School (now Harris Academy South Norwood), as well as designing the Stanley Halls.

Over the years, it's sustained damage and needed specialist repair but it remains one of the focal spots for meeting people in the area.  It also looks down across the community-run Clocktower Market which is held once a month.
