Hi Les,
How would it have been set up , time and accuracy ,then?
I expect you already have Chris McKay's little handbook, but if not, he does mention on page 7 that clocks were set from a sundial. This would have been the only method for hundreds of years before reasonably accurate and reliable weight driven clocks were available.

Regards,

Graham

Thanks
Both articles are very interesting
I wondered how clocks were regulated in the early 1800s
I am regulating the local Church , St Marys' Welwyn , after it was converted to electrical winding
A radio controlled digital clock is much easier than a sundial
