The Clock Tower Entrance[1] is one of the three main entrances of Hogwarts Castle (the other two being the Viaduct Entrance and the main Entrance Hall). It consists of a large open space at the base of the Clock Tower with two stairwells going up towards the upper levels of the Tower. Opposite the main entry there is a large window. There is contoversy however, as to why the window was placed there, considering if one looks at the whole structure of the Clock Tower, a building is propped right where the window is. A portrait of Damara Dodderidge was hung here [2] and, in 1995, so was a portrait of Termeritus Shanks.[1] The massive pendulum of the Clock swings over this Entrance. The Entrance can be sealed with a portcullis (which can be lowered and raised with the aid of a lever) [3] and the massive double doors can be locked with numerous bolts. [4]
