Victoria Station Clock Tower, Nottingham

Victoria Station Clock Tower, Nottingham

L3259. Nottingham Victoria station has often been described as being 'cathedral like' inside. It certainly was a huge site, and it's therefore not surprising that the land would be snapped up for development. Even before the line closed in 1969, work was underway to build a shopping centre, appropriately named the Victoria Centre, on the site. The developers, however, chose to keep the original station clock tower as the focal point to the new centre. Here we see the tower looking rather ill at ease with its surroundings in September 2002.
