St Mary's Chimes

For those of you locally who are wondering what has happened to our church clock chimes, for some time the automatic winding gear on the quarter hour chimes has been giving trouble. It has been patched up a number of times but now it has expired altogether. We did engage the clock mender to come and fix it but in the meantime he broke his ankle - so we are waiting for this to mend and get the job done properly. He hopes to be up and about again in a couple of weeks so with any luck the clock will be back to its full glory soon.

In the meantime you might like to take the opportunity to have a closer look at our clock and workings.
