The Clock Tower was originally built as a stable. However, during the 1930s the building was repurposed as a shop. The original, small stable windows were removed and the large bay windows installed. However, as the museum in the House expanded into space originally used for catering the Clock Tower took on the role of Milk Bar and Café. During the 1980s it operated as a fully licensed public house.
Of course nowadays it is used as a popular café and gift shop. You’re welcome to stop by and refuel before continuing your excursion around the grounds, or you could re-visit this place as an ‘end-of-trail treat’!
