The clock tower, built from Bath stone and grey limestone ashlar, was completed in 1908 by architect John Donkin and builder F. Stemson. Distinctive statues of Hope, Faith and Peace are mounted on octagonal pinnacles - one on each side of the building and supported by flying buttresses. There is a clock on every side of the tower, each enwreathed by carved foliage. Atop the tower is a conical pinnacle with a ball and weather vane.
Lowman Green Clock Tower
The Lowman Green Clock Tower is an iconic image of Tiverton and likely the best known monument in the town. Gifted with the surrounding land to the town by local man Thomas Ford JP in 1907, the three-sided clock tower - built in an Edwardian Gothic Revival architectural style - is now a Grade II listed buidling.
On the ground floor of the tower is a storage room with the exterior sides having a recessed moulded arch with a gable above. There is original stained glass in two of the wondows and on the third side there is a half-glazed oak door, also with original stained glass. Slip windows with original stained glass are within Bath stone panels on the upper stages and there are two carved shields, one showing the borough arms and the other the date of completion.
On one side of the tower at the lower level is a plaque dedicated to Thomas Ford who was Mayor of Tiverton from 1881 to 1883.
In 2008 the clock tower was handed back to Tiverton by Mid Devon County Council. The clock tower has recently been cleaned and restored by an anonymous donor.
