Two Grade-II listed town clocks built during the Victorian era in Powys are to undergo major restoration work.
Repairs to the clock will take about 12 weeks
The project to refurbish the 19th Century timepieces in Knighton and Hay-on-Wye will take about 12 weeks.
Both of the historic landmarks will be re-roofed and receive repairs to brick and stonework, leaded windows, their clock faces and timbers.
The work is expected to cost in the region of £120,000, said Powys Council, which is arranging the repairs.
It said a company in Chester would carry out the work.
A council spokesman said: "The restoration of these historic and local landmarks will further enhance the aesthetic appearance of these important market town centres for both visitors and locals."
In Machynlleth, the town council has been raising money towards the cost of restoring its town clock for years.
The 78ft (23.7m) timepiece was built in 1873, but it requires a major overhaul.
The restoration costs were put at £164,000 in 2002, but were estimated at more than £200,000 last year.
