Grasmere Clock

Event Details

Langdale’s parish church, Holy Trinity, Chapel Stile, contains in its tower a clock which can certainly be described as unique. It was made in 1858 by James Harrison, a relative of John Harrison who invented the chronometer and won the Longitude Prize. The design is by Lord Grimthorpe, the designer of Big Ben – he designed the clock as the prototype of Big Ben. Geoff Sykes, who lives in Langdale, will tell the story of this remarkable clock.
