Update on the town clock!
The original winding ratchet pawl (see below) broke while the clock was being wound up and needed to be re-made. We are pleased to say that the Clock maker has now finished the pawl, which has been made by hand, using the original as a pattern, from Gauge Plate steel. This should be in place in the next couple of weeks and we are looking forward very much to having our town clock working again.
