Technicians will be cleaning and maintaining the Great Clock during the week of 18 August, and will be pausing the clock’s hands, so don’t rely on a quick glance out of the window to tell you if you’re on time for that important meeting! Apparently the chimes will continue, as we’re advised that the technicians – some of whom will be asbseiling down to clean the clock faces – have been issued with ear defenders.
