Its been a while since I have posted here, hope you havent missed me too much!

I found a clock in an old barn during a site clearance. no pendulum, no key and was in a very poor state. I have a few pundulums and managed to jerry-rig one using a washer to the pendulum arm, found a key that fits and thought id see if it works. well suurise suprise it does run and has been running a few days now.

The woodwork has cracked on the front as you can see but its in relatively good state considering how it was stored.

I only wish now I had taken photos of it before i had cleaned it up!

Anyway, its a New Haven British Made (alegedly) clock, bit worse for wear but i like it.

Onl;y issue i have is the hours chimes does not appear to be correctly in synch - half hour chime is fine, hour chimes are incorect. I will spend a bit of time on it at some point to fix that.
