Long Description:
A basic three ring black skeleton clock on a white background. The outer two rings incorporate minute markers, unusually with no distinctions for 5 of 15 minute intervals. The inner two rings support the Roman numerals, including "IIII" rather than "IV" for four o'clock.

From the (visit link) website :-
"HISTORY: Wordsley began as a hamlet in the parish of St Mary Kingswinford. Early C19 industrialisation, especially glass manufacture, made the distant parish church too small. On February 28, 1826, the vestry agreed to build a new church on land donated by the Earl of Dudley. Of the contract price of £6,755, sale of glebe land provided £1,929, the Church Commissioners gave c. £3,000, and the rest was raised locally. The foundation stone was laid on August 27, 1829, and consecration was on December 9, 1831. Due to mining subsidence at St Mary, Holy Trinity became the parish church until St Mary reopened in 1846. The chancel was tactfully enlarged in 1886-7. Major repairs were made 1977-81; further reordered in 1996 by Jack Cotterill of Norman & Dawbarn."
