Long Description:
Church clock on the bell tower of St Peter & St Blaise's church, Somersal Herbert. There is a clock on each face of the tower. A skeleton frame design with roman numerals.

Presumably installed when the tower was built.

"In 1912 PH Currey & CC Thompson were commissioned to design a new west tower for the church (the church never having a west tower before, only a small bell cote on its western gable) and a new lychgate. The west tower is a striking piece of late Arts and Crafts Gothic architecture reminiscent of the Perpendicular Style (14th/early 15th century) of medieval Gothic architecture."
