      So, is he about to jump?
    by St_Vincent

The Albert Memorial Clock is Belfast?s very own leaning tower. Back in 1865 when it was built it was erected on land reclaimed from the River Lagan and due to subsidence since then it now leans about 1.25 meters. That?s not the only strange story around this memorial though. You?ll see that it features a statue of Prince Albert and if you look closely you?ll notice that the plinth on which he stands is a little too small so half of one foot is hovering off the edge giving the impression he is about to jump off.

Address: Queens Square
