Kneller Hall Clock Tower

The Clock Tower at Kneller Hall did not always look so pristine. With the gold leaf on the clock face rapidly fading, the weather vane rusting and the cladding in a state of decay, the tower was in need of attention.

Overview

As a listed building, every repair to the Clock Tower required a considered approach. The cladding needed to be repaired with an exact match of materials; the paintwork required the exact shades of blacks and whites; and the application of gold leaf on the weather vane and clock face was a highly skilled job, completed with meticulous attention to detail.

The end result is a superbly finished heritage building of which the MOD can be proud.
