Tower and clock pic

Can you help bring Time back to Belper?


What is the problem?


The clock, made by John Moore & Sons of Clerkenwell, London, dated 1864, seen by many on this famous part of the World Heritage site skyline has worn out and stopped. The tower roof above the clock has developed a leak and is letting rain into the tower and onto the bell-frame.
