OLD BRAMPTON (Derbyshire) - Church Clock

Information

Original church built in 1100.  Additions made in 13th and 14th centuries. Major restoration work done in 1870.  In 1897, to celebrate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee, a new clock, which still strikes the hours, was placed on the tower. The face is unique – it has 63 minutes, rather randomly arranged round the dial. Nobody knows how this came about. There are anything from 3 to 6 minute marks between the hour marks.
