The Clock Tower is a rare example of a medieval belfry. The people of St Albans built the tower sometime between 1403 and 1412 as a symbol of their resistance against the power of the abbot of St Albans. Its fine bell has also survived almost 600 years of use. Today, the tower still stands face to face with the Abbey's tower and provides fantastic views across the medieval town and far into the Hertfordshire countryside.
