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 are a local, you will know that it rarely told the right time! At the end of May 2017 we finished  a project to restore the clock, its dials and glazing, returning it to full working order and preserving for generations to come. The project was led by Norwood Action Group and Dr James Nye of The Clockworks. You can read more about the project and how it was funded in the clock_project case study.
