Eastland - Gisborne

The town clock in Gladstone Road is one of Gisborne's most recognisable and identifiable heritage structures. The clock tower was built in 1934. The town had been without a clock since severe earthquakes in 1931 and 1932 caused structural damage to the Chief Post Office, which at the time was home to the town clock. The original two-story brick Post Office was declared unsafe and dismantled on the site of what is now Heipipi Endeavour Park. While a new electric clock replaced the Post Office clock, the bells installed on the tower were those which originally did serve in the Post Office.
