Clock tower, 1888 (on inscription). Of red sandstone, brick and timber. Square stone base with projecting angles, moulded plinth, and recessed rectangular panels on four faces; the south facing panel has an inscription and date.

The tower rises first in sandstone, with chamfered quoins and carved inset arms above each head, then in brickwork with vertical sinkings to faces and quoins, and stone bands at three-course intervals. A projecting stone reeded cap supports the four-faced clock, which has the dials framed in timber, and equilateral pediments above each clock face. The tower is topped by an elaborate wrought iron support to a weather vane. Clock tower donated by employees of the railway company.
