More information on the Shelters, by Joan Cole:

The Warboys Shelters were built by local builder E.H.Duller & Son during the second half of the 1960s. Four were built in the village:
   1. Station Road at end of Coronation Avenue,
   2. Ramsey Road at the end of Jubilee Avenue,
   3. Mill Green (now removed) and
   4. Near the Clock Tower in the High Street.
The Clock Tower shelter Cost £324 7s 6d and was completed in July 1966. A young Mr D Dyer did the brickwork assisted by Mr L Payne, Mr D Norman and Mr R Baily. This shelter was never a bus shelter, it was a PUBLIC SHELTER, the bus stop was a short distance away. On the rear of the Clock Tower Shelter is an Ordnance Survey Bench Mark which often formed the reference frame for heights above mean sea level. The land for the Clock Tower Shelter was donated by Mr Tom Longland to the Parish Council; for more on this see the following letters:
