North End ArchwayThis is the North End archway, leading out to one Croydon's busiest shopping areas. High above there is a tower which originally held the chest of weapons from the Armada, and the mechanism of the tower's clock, which although not new when it was installed several hundred years ago, was one of the first of its kind. Also in the tower is a fascinating iron fireplace, but the tower can only be accessed through a resident's flat, so is only visited for routine maintenance purposes.
