Morpeth Clock Tower
One of the most fascinating thngs about Northumberland is Morpeth’s clock tower, which stands at the entrance to Oldgate, and is a rare example of a freestanding bell tower, one of only three built. Originally built as a jail, the town stocks were in front of it. For many years it had a clock with only one pointer and until recently the curfew bell was still sounded at 8 o'clock each evening.
