More Info →Hopwood Clock Tower, 1975

This image of the Hopwood Clock Tower shows it as it was in 1975 before the lantern box was installed. The cross was first erected in December 1960. While intended to be temporary it became a permanent fixture. In 1981 it was replaced with a new more substantial cross, 2.7 metres by 2 metres, paid for by local churches and individuals. The Council paid for its erection and maintenance. The new cross was put in place by crane and was wired by electricians Brian Corsbie, Wayne Bower and David Foster, for lighting from dusk until dawn. A remodeling of the Clock Tower in 2007 saw it replaced by a 'lantern' cross.
