Now is the time for us to get Bexhill’s iconic clock running again

The West Station clock helped travellers get to their trains on time for sixty-two years. Standing proudly in its tower, the four clock faces have overlooked Bexhill since 1902 when the line to Crowhurst first opened and the imposing West Station welcomed its first passengers.

A team from Bexhill Heritage has started to restore the clock and its four faces. It’s a big job after fifty years of neglect but we’re aiming to restart the clock at 3pm on Sussex Day, 16th June 2018 and to celebrate in grand style with a party at the West Station.
