Long Description:
Church clock on the north face of All Saints' church tower, Knipton. The clock has a black face with gilded roman numerals and hands.

"Knipton is attractively sited in the wooded valley of the little River Devon. It is an estate village to Belvoir Castle and as such reflects this in the majority of buildings. The Church, dedicated to 'All Saints' is set in the heart of the village. It has a bold west tower built partly in the 13th century.

A top storey was added in the 15th c. Much of the rest of the building dates from these periods and was heavily restored between 1845-6 and again in 1869 when the South aisle was added. The interior is attractive and cool with its white walls adding much to the feeling of a prayerful place. It has always been well maintained."
