Description Description contains history

The cupola, Clock Tower, Upton-on-Severn

The main body of the Tower is probably 14th century, although its base is 13th century. In 1770, the spire of the old tower was considered unsafe and it was replaced by the wooden hexagonal lantern and lead cupola, (later sheathed in copper), seen here, to the design of Midland architect Anthony Keck, giving the Tower its 'pepperpot' proportions.
