The tower is located by the river and a central park area. Wonderful place to stroll, feed the geese and chat with the locals.

Was here for Remembrance Day 2016. There was a parade of veterans and police to the front of the tower. After the ceremony the carillon was played and it was fantastic.

Great to hear the bells on the hour and quarter, it is beside a little park and river and has memories from first and second world wars.
