It has been a long time coming but the Nannup Clock Tower is now open for the public to visit.

Prominently placed in the CBD, the 6m tall, 3m wide wooden clock was created by Nannup craftsman Kevin Bird.

The clock is located next to Taste of Nannup, where people can book tours to see the structure and pay for entry.

Clock Tower time keeper and Taste of Nannup partner Heather Walford said it was wonderful to see the clock finally open to the public.

“Kevn will do his clock-maker tours on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays and people can book online or call us for that,” she said.

“There’s also an audio tour that people can do themselves.

“We want people to know we’re open 9am to 5pm, seven days a week.”

There will be an official opening of the Nannup Clock Tower on January 24, from 5pm to 9pm.

The event will include a free street party, food stalls and bar, children’s activities and live entertainment by The Velvet Edge.
