St George's Tower

This building was part of St George's Church. The original building had to be demolished as it was complete ruined by incendiary bombs in the 42 and that is the only part that was left. It was rebuilt as part of 1947 Development Plan.
Small naughty boys used to practice their stone throwing techniques in the clock.

You're fortunate to have this preserved. A wonderful campanile!

You are right Chuck, we kept that. It is not very big but it is beautiful.

Beautiful. Looking at the historical stuff always makes me wonder how it's like to live in that era...
