Charlbury Tower Clock

The Town Clock

The clock at St Mary's Church is 130 years old. It was originally installed with generous donations from the people of the town in 1885. Now, in 2015, the hands have sadly stopped turning. We need to erect scaffolding and bring in specialists to properly fix the clock so the hands can carry on turning for years to come for the benefit of the people of Charlbury.

The cost of the repair of the clock is beyond the limited resources of the Church Restoration Fund and we are now once more asking the people of Charlbury to help restore our historic town clock.

We need to raise £20,000 in total for the repairs and the donations have already started to come in. To date we have raised £13,000 and therefore have a final £7,000 still to raise.

If you would like to help get the clock working again, please make a donation so we can reach our target.

Cheques made out to 'Charlbury PCC' or cash donations can be placed in the attached envelope and put in one of collection boxes at:

The Coop by the Playing Close.
The Post Office in Market Street.
The Londis Shop on the Slade.

In addition, donation envelopes can be posted through the letter box at any of the following addresses:

The Old Manor House, Church Street (house next to church).
7 Enstone Road.
Brice House, Thames Street.
Wychwood Cottage, Hixet Wood.
14 Ticknell Piece Road.

Thank you for your support
