Maidstone (Part 2)

And now for all of the Maidstone clocks that lie outside of the town centre.

I had seen a picture of a clock in the park, so my mission was to track it down. It is a fair distance to walk to Mote House, towards the eastern end of Mote Park, although it was a pleasant journey in the morning sunshine. Alas, the clock tower of the stable block is currently under scaffolding and the clock has been removed. The stable block is being converted into luxury dwellings.

At least there is a picture of how the clock will look like when the conversion is completed.

The long walk back into town at least afforded me a distant view of the cricket ground's clock.

And enabled me to visit St Philip's church on Waterloo Street.

And finally, St Michael and All Angels (the church that is - it would be pretty exceptional to see one angel in Maidstone, let alone all of them) on Tonbridge Road.
