Stewartby Village Hall - Restoration of the Clock Tower & Bell 

A grant has provided the opportunity to restore the clock tower and replace the bell which now chimes daily. The original weather vein which can be seen at the common room has been replaced by a new galleon in a similar style to the Stuart ship.

Above the main entrance doors the lynette shows the Stewart family crest.

The emblem on the front of the building takes the shape of a gilded beehive and represents the beehive of industry. Immediately below this is the word Stewartby.
