Tock it’s Stroud Clock – R & R Property Have Moved Into “Bowen Chambers” as written by The DUNGOG CHRONICLE
The building, which was built in 1933 as the home of Stroud Council, was purchased by Ted Bowen in 1982 to house his expanding insurance brokering business.
The clock tower wasn’t built until 1956.
A broker for over 50 years, he originally set up an office in the front room of his house before buying the house across the road next to the Stroud School of Arts building.
“The council eventually became part of Great Lakes Council and their main office was located in Forster,” Mr Bowen said.

In October 2014 Ted and Gwen decided to retire and sold the business,
It is now leased to Denise Haynes from R & R Property who is thrilled to be the new custodian of the building.
“We were outgrowing our old premises and when this came available, I approached Ted and we struck a deal,” Denise said.
“It’s a grand old building with lots of character and I love being here under the clock tower, it’s a bit of an icon in Stroud.
“We moved into it in May this year and it’s great to have the clock back working.
“It was stuck on 10.55 for a long time, but now it is keeping
