Craiginches clock
The old Craiginches clock as incorporated into the communal garden of the residential development that replaced the prison.

The garden was designed by Lina Khairy, a third year student at Robert Gordon University's Scott Sutherland School of Architecture.

The design was called 'Break Free' and topped a public poll of Torry residents. In addition to the clock face, the design used granite blocks from the prison's perimeter wall.

The garden was officially opened in December 2018 by Scottish Housing Minister Kevin Stewart MSP. The housing development, including 124 affordable homes, was created by a company called Santuary in partnership with the Scottish Government and Aberdeen City Council.

This photograph was submitted to the Silver City Vault by Alison Murray, a member of staff at Airyhall Library.
