Thurgarton, St Peter’s Church Nottinghamshire
The clock mechanism in St Peter’s Church is a Bosworth of Nottingham ‘Armchair style’ Hour Strike. It is manually wound and has not been serviced for some time. On arrival at the start of the inspection the Clock was stopped. Our clockmaker started the mechanism and it appeared to work reasonably well. Prior to this, it had not been working for nearly a year. The Clock mechanism needs stripping and cleaning to remove debris and congealed oil.
We were also asked to install Automatic winding units to remove the need for weekly and an Automatic night silencing system
