I was asked the other day if I could "have a look" at our village's church clock. Some of the locals had heard I was into clock repair and told the church warden. I read up all I could about tower clocks and decided to take the plunge. Straight away I could see that the clock has been converted to electric winding and found the strike side had "over wound" itself and had jammed up. I freed this up and the self winder kicked in. I then got the chimes back into synchronization and set the correct time. Today after three weeks I noticed it was running a bit fast (in fact I was advised by a villager) so ventured up the tower again this time armed with my camera. I adjusted the pendulum a couple of turns on the regulating nut and will no doubt have to go back and fine tune it! I have also been asked to write a small piece for the village magazine about the clock so am really looking for anything anyone can tell me about it. As you can see, I guess it is fairly typical of what is found in small rural churches here in the UK. The inscription on the great wheel appears to indicate it was made by a Norfolk clock maker as it is engraved R. ULPH and has a date of 1819. The church bell has a date of 1845 which is sort of consistent with the date the church was re-built . NORTH PICKENHAM, THE STREET Church of St. Andrew Parish church. Largely rebuilt 1863 by D. Male, but retaining much of earlier west tower and north transept.
