The clock's coming back!

Following a period of conservation and repair, the iconic clock face at Castle Rushen will be reinstalled tomorrow. The clock will be raised by the abseiling team from the Venture Centure, working in partnership with Manx National Heritage.  

Initial work will commence at 9.30am, with the clock face anticipated to be raised and in place by early afternoon. 

The medieval clock has been in continual use in Castletown for over 400 years. Manx National Heritage has undertaken extensive conservation work on the clock, returning it to working order in 2014. This second phase of work will complete the renovation of the clock face, overlooking the town square.
