An iconic landmark in Harlesden will be returning next month after it was removed to allow a £4.5million regeneration project of the town centre to take place.

The Jubilee Clock will be relocated to a different position in the High Street after it was moved from its original position on a traffic island in last June year.

During its absence the clock, which dates back to 1887, has been restored to its original condition.

The move took place to make way for a new two-way traffic scheme which aims to improve the flow in the notoriously gridlocked area.

Since last October, High Street Harlesden and Manor Park Road welcomed traffic from both directions.

The scheme has also seen the creation of a semi-pedestrianised zone of the High Street.

The Jubilee Clock will return to Harlesden on February 14.

A special unveiling event will take place from noon to 4pm.
