Clock tower, Shrewsbury

Shrewsbury’s Market Hall and Clock Tower was unpopular when it replaced an earlier Victorian building in 1965, and it still divides opinion to this day. But while the market hall is something of a carbuncle, the clock tower is a fine example of 1960s architecture. If talk of demolishing the complex ever comes to fruition, it is to be hoped that the clock tower could be retained.
