Kingston upon Thames Clocks

Kingston has a great range of clocks, although it is a pity that not all of them are working.

This new development is right by Kingston railway station, handy for all those commuters.

In the town centre itself, there are three stopped clocks, including the splendid one for the Kingston Building Society in Eden Street.

The other two are in Thames Street and Dolphin Street respectively.

It is nice to see modern buildings include clocks, but unlike the first one in today's blog many of them are uninspired. These two examples are the bus station and an office building in Wheatfield Way respectively:

Churches are always a good source for clock hunters. These two are All Saints and St Lukes.

And finally, the splendid clock tower at Surrey County Hall, a street clock in Clarence Street, and an unusual clock face at the Kingston Muslim Association.
