Maitland St Mary's clock tower tours

From the Maitland Mercury report:

It was the people of Maitland who insisted that the church tower have a clock, so changes were made to the structural design of the steeple.
When everything was completed in 1887, the clock and chiming bells were started on Queen Victoria’s Jubilee Day on June 21.
