Went looking for benchmark on the tower.. it appears to have gone, possibly when the footbridge over Foleshill Road was removed and building converted to offices. The flagstaff was a component of this trig point, but that gone. No attempt made to look for the rivet.

Like Father Ted, I used to be employed by Courtaulds, first in Coventry then elsewhere. Needing to make a quick visit to Coventry, I decided to pass by some old haunts, noting this surviving clock tower en route.

The clock tower is the one part of the Courtaulds site that has survived the redevelopment. The flagpole seems to have gone now and the rivet, if still there, was inaccessible. Twenty years ago when I worked there I maybe could have got permission to go and have a look.
