Turret Clock Malmesbury

Since the mid sixteenth century, the tower of St Paul's Church has acted as the bell-tower of the Abbey across the churchyard. For an unknown period, but at least from the beginning of the 19th Century, it has held the town's clock. The "Henry Weight" clock in the Athelstan Museum, Malmesbury was commissioned in 1859, replacing an earlier clock of which little is known.
