THE CLOCK on St Augustine’s Church is working again after its repair – but at first glance yesterday it had a markedly darker face!
After closer comparison with earlier photos then in actual fact it is the golden numbers, the hands and the outer rim that seems to have lost its gold sparkle!
Earlier picture of the clock showing its golden gleam!
It would be interesting to find out how the clock faces are actually cleaned and repainted.
Is it done from the outside – and has this ever been caught on photo?
Can anyone enlighten us?
