Clock Work!!

The work is complete!  The three faces have been painted and gilded, and the gleaming hands re-attached; the clock mechanism has been overhauled and the clock re-started.  Once again we are enjoying the services of our community time-keeper and its hourly chimes.   During the Beer Festival Family Fun Day at 2.00pm on Saturday, October 6th, Bishop Helen-Ann led a short service at which the renovations were dedicated.  Our heartfelt thanks go out to the whole community for their generous response to our appeal – and we now have the most beautiful clock faces in all North Yorkshire!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The work has covered restoration of the three faces – blue background with gold-leafing on the numerals and hands,  as well as overhaul and renovation, where needed, of the clock mechanism.
