Title Bournemouth: Lansdowne clock tower A well known landmark in Bournemouth, this was built as the municipal college, completed in 1919, and remains the Bournemouth campus of Bournemouth & Poole College of Further Education. On its completion, it was branded an eyesore; however, with the wartime bombing of the Hotel Metropole opposite and its replacement by a more modern structure - along with plenty other recent development - it is one of the oldest and most striking buildings in this part of town. See also 509117; detail of the tower can be seen at 509123. Since November 2004 the clock has been out of action and there is currently an appeal for £¾m to get the thing started again - the hands are at the moment stuck at approximately twelve o'clock, more approximately on some sides than others.
