Tick tock


We have a very special treat for our readers this morning - a video of a clock ticking! Yes, that's right, a clock ticking. But this is not any old clock... this is the Elizabethan one-fingered lantern clock currently on the wall in the Audit Room, which although in good working order, is not usually wound due to its noisy mechanics, which have a habit of disrupting music practice.

However on one occasion last week (at about quarter past four, as you can tell from the position of the single hand) the Librarian stumbled across it ticking away to itself and was compelled to produce this mesmerising short film for the benefit of all our many friends and readers unable to experience this phenomenon for themselves...
