For the repair and restoration of the Kingsland Parish Church clock.

by Peter King in Kingsland, England, United Kingdom

The Church clock, that has served the village of Kingsland for 141 years, has now expired through old age! It was originally installed as a memorial to Thomas Gethin in 1877, and bears the initials of the two Churchwardens of the time, Gethin and Benjamin Lawrence Sanders. The church tower it sits in dates from the 12th Century, and is part of a unique medieval Church in that the building has never been altered or added to since construction finished. 

After years of carefully nursing our beautiful clock mecanism  it is now beyond repair and needs to be replaced. At the same time we can convert the clock to electrical power such that it no longer requires a weekly wind up. We have a very generous sponsor who will match £ for £ up to £3,500. Can you help us?????
