It's a clock !

It's not something you'd go out of your way to see but it's there, it's an elegant looking clock, it tells time, and it looks nice where it is.

I mean it's a pretty nice clock, it stands out against the bleak brick. But ultimately it is just a clock. I am glad it exists because it makes me smile to look at it, and around the base the walk is quite nice. But this isn't a thing to go out of your way to visit. Maybe if you... More

There isn't really anything special about this clock so don't make a special joinery out just to see it, and if you're in the car you might even miss it, depending on which way you enter and leave the roundabout.

Unless you're really in to clocks then don't make a special visit, there's a lot of great things to see in Birmingham and this probably isn't one of them.

If you like clocks this one is fine, but it is only worth seeing on a passing visit to Birmingham. It s stuck in the middle of a traffic island

I appreciate that there may be some travellers who appreciate clocks, but this is nothing exceptional. In scale it's a a 4 face clock on a central pole approx 16 feet tall. It's on a tiny section of land between two dual carriageways on a five way interchange. For those determined to visit my advice would be to park at... More
