OLDEST CLOCK IN ENGLAND.
Erected In 1320 In One af the Towers
of Poterborough Cathedral.
Peterborough cathedral has the old .
est working clock In England. It was
erected about 1320 and Is proba111y
the work of a monastic cloclmaler.
It ta the only one now known that Is
wound up over an old wooden wheel.
This wheel is about 12 feet in cir
omnforence , and the galvanized cable ,
about 300 feet in length , supports a
leaden weight or 3 ewt. , which has
to l.Ie wound up dally.
The clock Is. said to be of much
more primitive construction than that
made by Henry de Nick for Charles V.
of Franco ! in 1370. The clock chamber .
l.Iel' is In the northwest tower , some
120 feet high , where the sunlight has
not penetrated 'hundreds of years ,
and the winding is done by the light
of a candle.
The gong io the great tenor bell of
the cathedral , which weighs 32 cwt" ,
and it Is struck hourly by an 80
pound hammer. The going and the
striking parts of the clock are some
yards apart , communication being by
a slender wire. The clock has no
dial. The time is shown on the main
wheel of the escapement , which goes
round once In two .hours.
