Welcome back…….

It’s great to see the bells returned to the historic clock tower in Truro Municipal Buildings.

City Hall and the clock tower were badly damaged by fire in 1914, which left only the side of the tower that faces Boscawen Street remaining in its original granite form.

The bells were removed while work was carried out to repair and reconstruct the iconic tower.

With the reconstruction project, jointly funded by Cornwall Council and Truro City Council, due to be completed in the Autumn, the refurbished bells were craned back into position earlier this week.

Welcoming the return of the bells, Truro City Mayor, Councillor Carol Swain, said: “The Municipal Buildings and clock tower is an iconic feature of Truro’s rich heritage, as well as being the home of Truro City Council, so to see the bells reinstated and to look forward to the tower being brought back to its former glory to be enjoyed by future generations, is wonderful.”
