I'm going to try to put Nostell Priory's photos on as much as possible to 'show' you aroundSmile. I titled it as "Wooden clock" rather than Grandfather clock, because it was made from wood, sounds silly... I meant the working parts of the clock. It was made by John Harrison. A carpenter and a clockmaker, also the inventor of marine chronometer. A true genius and a great craftsman.
The light wasn't good. I have to brighten them up on PS. V2 is the closer look of the face, I had to crop it and put a bit border on.. otherwise, I would need a ladder to take the photo, it's quite tall, you see.Grin And V3 shows the wood gears inside the case. Thanks for looking.

Lovely clock. I have a very old one but the cabinet has long become, how can I put this in the nicest way, decrepit, it is a grandfather clock so I suppose decrepit is a good description. Smile I would love to visit this beautiful Abbey.

I have never heard of a long case clock with wooden moving parts like this: you have done a fine job in capturing and presenting these shots, Jasmine, achieved under testing circumstances.


Good images Jasmine. Long been an admirer of Harrison, spent half his life making bigger chronometers to stand the motion of ships, realized his mistake & spent 2nd half of his life making a small one that would move with the ship. Well worth reading more on his fight with authorities over the prize money. Regards, Si.
