Palmerston North Clock Tower

he Hopwood Clock Tower, also known as Kerei Te Panau, but most commonly known simply as The Clock Tower, is a clock tower located in the centre of The Square in Palmerston North, New Zealand. The tower is named after local businessman Arthur Hopwood who paid for it to be constructed in 1953.[1]. The Maori name for the clock tower 'Kerei Te Panau' comes from the name of a local Rangitane chieftain.

The modern tower has two luminous features, a 'lantern cross' at its top and light-up glass panes at the base.
