This week (week starting 19 March 2018) the clock returned – or rather, the completely refurbished clock faces returned. They look fantastic and they have been hoisted up ready to be fixed into place over the next few days.
We hope and intend to get the clock working again, but the mechanism does need some tender love and care. Unfortunately, the pigeons had made their home in and around the mechanism, and they were not the tidiest of guests. But nevertheless, the clock faces and hands will look resplendent, and the clock mechanism will be coaxed back to life ready to tell the time to Highfields once again.
The photo’s show the last of the clock faces being taken off the lorry and raised up ready to be fixed into place.
