  • Description

    "The clock, installed in 1821, was made by John Moore of Clerkenwell, one of the great makers of turret clocks. It was completely rebuilt by Potts of Leeds in 1886 and converted to chiming the Westminster chimes; it strikes the hours on the tenor bell. The copper dials are eight feet in diameter. {Source: Hexham Abbey Guide, p11.}" Photo by Mike Quinn, 2008.
