Members of the Witleys Oral History Group and local residents were given a tour of Abberley Hall & Clock Tower. The tour was conducted by Jo Roach a local historian who gave the group a fascinating insight into the history of the Hall. The tour culminated in a tour of the inside of the clock tower where we were able to film the action of the clock as it struck 6pm. That video is available to see on our page about the Abberley Clock Tower.
