From 1872 onwards when the then new Guild Hall was built. That clock had 4 faces and was fitted into a tall tower and it was said that people could see the time on the clock from all directions. It could actually be seen from Y Maes if one stood near the Castle hotel as the tower was tall enough for people to see over the top of the buildings on the other side of Y Maes. In 1898/1902 the tower was found to have dry rot and was reduced in size to the one as shown in the photo below.
