Our Historic Clock

The clock situated in the tower of St. Luke’s is of national historic significance. It was made in 1827 by the famous clockmaker BL Vulliamy and is the earliest example of a flatbed turret clock movement in England. However, if you spend any time in West Norwood you will know that it doesn’t usually tell you the right time! We are currently working with Dr James Nye on a project that will see the clock returned to full working order and preserved for generations to come. You can read more about the planned work in our Our_Historic_Clock leaflet. If you would like to make a donation towards the project please download the donation form and return it to us along with your donation. The total estimated cost of the project is £40,000.

You can also donate by text message: text “CLOC27 £10” or any other amount to 70070.
