The clock, designed by Nicholas Cratzer and built by Nicholas Oursain, was originally installed on the gatehouse to the inner court in 1540. It is 15 foot in diameter and has 3 separate dials all rotating at different speeds. It was restored in 1711 and again in 2007 and is still in working order.

I am semi-retired after a career in medical sciences. I now work from home doing independent research and consultancy amongst other things. One advantage of this is that I do have time to indulge my interests including birdwatching, natural history, steam trains and history particularly ancient history. View all posts by Pete
