Time Check on Commuter Route

Residents and commuters in Shrewsbury can now take a time check with ease after a well-known landmark has been restored.

Topsy Penn and Ian McDougall from Pughs of Shrewsbury welcome back the well-known clock

Our enormous clock has been in place on the face of our building in Longden Coleham for over 25 years. But as part of a major redevelopment programme at the historic premises, the clock was removed for refurbishment.

Now Smiths of Derby have fully restored the local landmark and returned it to its rightful place high above the street.

The reinstatement of the clock is the final piece in the jigsaw and marks the completion of our ambitious redevelopment plans.We’re hoping it will now be safely in place for another 25 years after such careful restoration work.

It’s used by locals and commuters for a quick time check as they travel through the busy Longden Coleham area, and we’ve had many compliments already from people saying they’re very pleased to see it back.
