St.Albans Clock Tower

Recently St.Albans clock tower reopened after a 'spruce up'. I've never climbed the tower so we went along to see what had been done. It's all very smart now with very good information boards.

 Here's the clock itself. Even this seems to have been cleaned up.

 No nice old pennies like on Big Ben's pendulum - just a collection of old washers to ensure it keeps the correct time.

 More of the clock mechanism.
