THE Bitterne Triangle clock tower is one of Southampton’s best known landmarks that has stood proudly in the city since the 1880s.

The monument, designed by Kelway-Pope, was bequeathed to the city by Henrietta Bellenden Sayers and erected in 1889 as a tower with a clock and water trough for animals.

It was originally located in Above Bar but was moved to its present site in 1934 when roadworks were being carried out in the city centre.

During the early 1900s the clock tower, then at the junction of New Road with Above Bar, was a favourite subject for postcards.
