The Albert Memorial Clock on Queen's Square was completed in 1869 as a memorial to Queen Victoria's Prince Consort Prince Albert. Built on marshy ground reclaimed from the Farset river, it leans 4 feet off the perpendicular. The 113 feet tall sandstone tower combines French and Italian Gothic styles, featuring a life-size statue of Prince Albert in the robes of a Knight of the Garter on the western side and ornately carved crowned heraldic lions on the flying buttresses. The base has carvings of Neptune, Mercury and Britannia.
