Clock Tower and Gatehouse Restoration

Restoration of the Clock Tower and Gatehouse at Rougham Hall is now complete. Located at Rougham Hall near Bury St Edmunds, this building was established in 1924 and had reached the point of collapse. The Hall itself was seriously damaged on 23 September 1940 when it received a direct hit from a German bomb and the clock mechanism within the tower has  been revealed for the first time since the 1940’s. As part of the restoration project on the Clock Tower,  two huge bells were brought back to life whilst repairs were made.  The Gatehouse has been beautifully refurbished into a 3 bedroom accommodation with some very unique features!
