The Peers Memorial (The Town Clock)

This  landmark in St. Peter's Square is about to undergo a programme of restoration.


As part of the condition survey a drone examination of the memorial was carried out - and this also provides some wonderful views of our historic town centre. You can view the video (silent) taken by the drone here.

You can read Gwynne Morris's story of Joseph Peers and his memorial in the Ruthin Local History Broadsheet No. 30, which is on this website and can be seen using this link.
