Old Main Clock


The original Old Main building, constructed in 1880, was replaced in 1917, but the clock was saved. This little tower was built in the 1990s to house the four sided clock which keeps time but does not chime. The larger tower does chime using a Westminster chime pattern.

  2. Pity you can’t see if this is equal to the tower of Pisa or just a lens distortion.

    1. Just lens distortion. Nothing serious. Heard they began to straighten the Pisa tower so it wouldn't fall over.

  5. It is so good that they saved the old one and coordinated the new one so nicely to it!

  6. Nice. I wonder if it's because people needed to see the time more accurately than just what for the chimes on the hour?
