The St Clements’ Clocktower in Mile End Road is on the site of the old St Clement’s Hospital, a former mental health hospital.

Last week, flats in the Grade II listed tower went on the market, with one and two-bed homes starting from £435,000.

The tower is part of the St Clements development, which is home to London’s first community land trust scheme. The scheme is a model of affordable housing which sets house prices based on average incomes in the area, rather than market rates.

To secure a home in the trust, residents have to meet a number of criteria, including connection to the community, ability to get a mortgage, and length of time in the area.
