Work to restore the titular clocks at Dockyard’s iconic Clocktower has begun in the US.

According to a Wedco spokesman, the clocks were installed 30 years ago, with one giving the time and the other the high tide time. However, mechanisms in the clocks have since worn out, and the quango has announced that it would invest $200,000 into their restoration.

“The work was given to the Electric Time Company of Massachusetts and the new clocks are starting to take shape in the factory,” the spokesman said.

Joanna Cranfield, Wedco’s business development manager, added: “The work that has been done so far looks fantastic. It will be great to get the clocks back in working order; they are such a significant landmark.”
