Mayor achieves ambition to explore Jubilee Clock Tower

A lifelong itch has been scratched after the Mayor of Windsor and Maidenhead was given a rare look inside the Jubilee Clock Tower.

Access is rarely granted to the Maidenhead landmark, built to commemorate Queen's Victoria's Diamond Jubilee in 1897, but Cllr Andrew Jenner was given the opportunity to look around yesterday.

He squeezed into the cramped space within the tower, situated opposite Maidenhead Station, and climbed two steep flights of steps leading to the clock faces and mechanism.

Cllr Jenner said he had wanted to have a tour since he was a child and added: "I won't get another chance like this and I drive past it every day and wonder what it's like inside."
