Millennium clock

Art and Design 2 min read. The millennium clock tower echoes the form of a medieval cathedral, standing just over ten metres high. It marks the passing of time but is also a summary of the best and worst of the twentieth century. Each has its own stories to tell and secrets to reveal.

Made by Millennium Clock Makers Trust. Museum reference K. Did you know? The Crypt at the base of the tower houses a bewildering combination of wheels and chains.

Two figures are at the heart of this section: an oak figure of an Ancient Spirit and the colourful, mischievous Egyptian Monkey, now a favourite with children. The Nave holds a pendulum with a skeletal death figure straddling a convex mirror.

Distorted figures of Lenin, Hitler and Stalin act as a reminder of the worst aspects of the twentieth century. But there is celebration of better times, too, with a playground of animated characters, including a Chaplin-like figure. Higher still is The Belfry, which accommodates the clock and the Requiem, a circle of twelve figures.

Each represents a calendar month, as well as a hardship or tragedy that has afflicted humanity, from war to famine, slavery to persecution. The clock face is the most contemporary part of the tower with its brightly-coloured glass panels. The precision of the clock counteracts the chaos seen elsewhere in the tower. Right at the top of the clock tower is The Spire, empty apart from its bell.

A figure stands at the very top, a female figure carrying a dead man. It acts as a symbol for what has gone before and the strength we need to move forward. Millennium clock tower Art and Design 2 min read.

Clock from main power system is fed into an escapement that powers a slow moving titanium pendulum. You rotate its round handles to let yourself in, and then seal the doors behind you. This one is much millennium to wind because the dial motion consumes less power than ringing bells.
