Victoria Tower is a Gothic style clock tower located alongside Salisbury Dock in Liverpool, England. Positioned between the two river entrance gates to the Salisbury Dock itself, the tower acted as an aid to ships.
Victoria Tower was designed by Jesse Hartley and was constructed between
1847 and 1848, to commemorate the opening of Salisbury Dock. It is
often referred to as the "Dockers clock".
This spectacular piece of showmanship is primarily a handsome clock and
bell tower not only giving time to neighbouring docks and arriving and
departing ships but also rang out high tide and warning notes.
It is constructed of granite of irregular shaped blocks in the form of a
hexagon with a high tapered circular base, and a tower crowned by a
projecting castellated parapet carried on corbels.
