Time Out (from college)

Students from the clocks programme at West Dean College, near Chichester, have been undertaking condition assessments on clock movements at Temple Newsam House, under the guidance of their tutor Matthew Read. The plan is to get more of the clocks on display at Temple Newsam House into working order, to give visitors a richer experience when visiting the house.

Comprehensive assessment of the George Pyke pedestal organ clock. It is designed to play eight tunes, and there are automata figures on the dial face that move about when the music plays.
