Clock tower at High Beeches

High Beeches in Handcross was featured in a newspaper report and it concentrated on the clock tower built on the top of the coach house.
Col. Giles Loder’s horse, Spion Kop, won the Derby in 1920 and he commemorated the win by building the tower, although the clock was not added until 1928 when he had another big win.. (See picture #35)
It was unusual for the newpaper to commission an artist to draw the coach house and clock tower instead of using a photograph, but none the worse for that.
