Made by Gillettt and Johnston in 1901 when the building was new, it failed spectacularly in December 2018 with hands turning at 60 times normal speed. We were lucky enough to receive a grant for Smiths of Derby to take the mechanism away and fully repair it. Unfortunately more work was suggested as being necessary and the extra was too much for us to afford, so reluctantly we have had to leave it showing 12 noon all the time.
