The Clock Tower in Foxdale

If you are like me and wonder what this Clock Tower is all about every time you drive past it then read on;

The Clock Tower in Foxdale is certainly a well known landmark in the Village and was erected and paid for in 1901 by the Foxdale Mining Company Ltd for the benefit of Foxdale and to commemorate Queen Victoria’s reign of 64 years. The tower was later restored by the Department of Local Government in 1992.

The white plague half way up the tower reads;
VICTORIA.R.I.
REIGNED 64 YEARS
AND STILL REIGNS IN THE HEARTS
OF HER PEOPLE

The wording on the lower plaque names the Chairman and Directors of the Foxdale Mining Company.
