THE OLD ST MARY'S TOWER CLOCK (1782-1980)
This clock was probably installed in the Georgian Church which was built on this site in 1782 A.D and it was then transferred to the present tower when the existing church was built in 1841. The clock is a cage frame hour striking clock and the escapement is of the “recoil” type which was not a good time keeper. Gains or losses accumulated fairly rapidly so the clock required frequent timekeeping adjustment. It was powered by heavy weights suspended in the tower and wound up by hand. To do this, one of the Churchwardens would climb up the narrow spiral staircase which is embedded in the wall of the tower and was light by candles. In August 1980 A.D this clock was replaced by a synchronous electric clock with an Auto Restart Unit which would operate in the event of a power cut. It would restart the clock at the correct time 12 hours later. This new clock was installed by John Smith & Sons of Derby. It was decided not to install an hour striking mechanism. It took four men to move the old clock into this galley for display. The clock in the West Gallery dates from 1786 A.D.
