The ornate clock tower was built in 1902 to commemorate the life and works of Richard Mallock, a local magistrate of many years’ standing who had died during a holiday in Scotland two years before. Mallock was Torquay’s MP from 1886 to 1895, and the building costs for the memorial were paid for through subscriptions raised from among his constituents.


6. Turn right onto Parkhill Road again, and then left onto Daddyhole Road to return to the start of the walk.


The Pavilion started life as an elegant theatre and assembly room during Edwardian times. Together with the entire area of the Princess Gardens, it was built on land reclaimed from the sea during the late 19th century.


From the origins as a natural inlet, the late Georgian and Victorian development of Torquay surrounds the harbour of today on three sides. At its head, where once a sandy beach was to be found, is situated ‘The Strand’ with hidden streams at either end, one named ‘The Fleet’,


now under Fleet Street. Queen Victoria provided the stamp of approval to Torquay’s place in society as a superior resort and watering place by her visits, originally as a princess, when she was welcomed ashore at Victoria Parade.


5. At the Mallock Clock Tower, bear left to walk up Torwood Street, turning right onto Parkhill Road at the traffic lights. Bear left up Meadfoot Road, past Meadfoot Lane, to the crossroads beyond.
