Brief History Of The Clock Tower


A clock tower and former pin factory built in 1743 as part of William Champion's Warmley Brass Works. Its sobriquet of the "Slab" is derived from "Arts Laboratory". The three storey building is built of rubble with black slag   quoins. The main part of the building has a hipped pantiled roof. The actual tower is set forward and has a saddleback gabled pantile roof. The tower also has slag quoins which may have formerly been components from an annealing oven. the upper storey houses an 18th century bell and a clock with an octagonal external dial. 

The clock tower is linked to a single storey structure to the west, the lower part of which is built of black slag worked to ashlar, also with black slag quoins. The building is now a community centre and is a Listed Building.



The Chilling Past...

During the Victorian Era, sicknesses within the workforce caused many Deaths, as a result many trapped spirits reside here. The scent of the Old Machinery fills the air and noises and cranks can be heard after dark. Footsteps have been heard walking down the corridors, the sightings of a Young Boy and Girl have also been seen and witnessed by many. 

We investigate this Historic Building for the first time and invite you to gain your own experiences and add these to the stories we have already been told, we know that there is far more History and going ons to report and look forward to you joining us.
