Birmingham’s iconic Chamberlain Clock returns to Jewellery Quarter after restoration

Chamberlain Clock returns to Jewellery Quarter after restoration

Wikipedia states:

“The Chamberlain Clock is an Edwardian, cast-iron, clock tower in the Jewellery Quarter of Birmingham, England. It was erected in 1903 to mark Joseph Chamberlain’s tour of South Africa between 26 December 1902 and 25 February 1903, after the end of the Second Boer War. The clock was unveiled during Chamberlain’s lifetime, in January 1904 by Mary Crowninshield Endicott, Joseph Chamberlain’s third wife.”

The Clock was removed to a factory for repairs and refurbishment in August 2020 was returned to it’s original position on Saturday 20 March and installation was complete on Monday.

The clock will now chime once again and is a visual jewel so appropriate to compliment the jewels of the quarter as can be seen in the gallery of photos below.
