The Little Paxton Church Clock

Here is the Little Paxton Church Clock back in the tower having been refurbished by Smiths of Derby over the last few months.

The clock striking bell is one of our orginal bells, cast in 1713 by Thomas Newman. It is inscribed ” Will Hedding CHW” . It was choosen as the clock bell as it hadnt been tuned in its lifetime as we now have the original sound chiming on the hour.

It can be viewed in all its glory this Saturday December 17th when we have a church and tower open day from 11.00am onwards.
