Clock work


Share post:

In about two weeks the 136-year-old clock at the West Wing of Parliament will be ticking again.
 After being out of commission since last October, the clock faces have been removed from their slots in the tower and are being refurbished by British traditional clockmaker Andrew Hinks and his colleague Brian Perry. Many of the clock’s original inner components will be replaced.
 The pair, who work with the traditional clock company Smith of Derby, arrived in the island last month to undertake the repairs.
 Yesterday, the extent of the work involved in the operation could be seen from the scaffolding and crane (right) and individuals working on the project, which is being facilitated by the Ministry of Transport and Works. (DB)
