Long Description:
The clock is located on the building that used to be the home of the Hanley Economic Building Society but is now the premises BBC Radio Stoke.

"BBC Radio Stoke is the local radio service for Stoke, Staffordshire and South Cheshire. It came to air at 5pm on Thursday 14th March 1968 as BBC Radio Stoke-On-Trent.
Radio Stoke has always had its base in Hanley town centre. Even when the need for computerisation and a more sustainable office area forced a move from the old Conway House building, the station only moved 100 yards - to its present base at the BBC Centre at the other end of Cheapside by Albion Square.

In June 2002, the BBC moved its county HQ into a brand spanking-new building in the centre of Stoke-on-Trent's Cultural Quarter at Cheapside, Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent. Formerly, this was the Hanley Economic Building Society, and before that, the building is believed to have been a school. The new building was opened by HRH Princess Anne & the Director General of the BBC, Greg Dyke on Tuesday 23rd July 2002.
The original Radio Stoke building is still occupied by a local radio station - Cross Rhythms City Radio.
