The site of this leaning clock tower makes this a nice spot to see some interesting sights. It's close to the water too.

It means 4 ft backward and 4ft to the side, due to the wooden piles being eroded by the underground river. A must see even if you just stare at the lean ... quite disconcerting when you are stood underneath it!!
