    Thank you Yorrick, another amazing site : )
    Also explored with The Shepshed Diamond Back.

    History

    The village of Catthorpe dates back to the Doomsday, and there has been a manor house on the estate for several hundred years. The manor was part of the A14 Catthorpe interchange, and dates back to the 18th Century.

    The current manor house was built in 1925 following a fire that burnt the original building to the ground in the early 19th Century. The estate has been owned since 1975 by registered charity ‘The Latvian Welfare Trust’.

    The clock was made by John Moore and Sons of Clerkenwell in 1857.
    He started making clocks around 1802 and the company ceased trading around 1899.
    During that period he made some 700 turret clocks and 15,000 “domestic” clocks for the English market, as well as many others that were shipped abroad.
    This is a chiming clock.

    It has 3 trains or sets of wheels that perform separate jobs.
    The centre or “going” train keeps time and provides the power to turn the hands.
    The striking train rings a bell every hour. It is triggered by the going train.
    The chiming train sounds the quarter hour. It is also triggered by the going train.
    Both "triggers" are disabled.

    I've moved this out of Industrial as it's part of a residence.

    Nice clock mechanism there!

    You’re welcome again. I love the moving pendulum and the shadows :thumb

    It’s 2 years since I fixed this one (report here) and it's still my favourite clock. All credit to the maker - if I manage to wind it once a week, it keeps perfect time.

    Edit this into your report if you want MM -

    It was made by John Moore and Sons of Clerkenwell in 1857.
    He started making clocks around 1802 and the company ceased trading around 1899.
    During that period he made some 700 turret clocks and 15,000 “domestic” clocks for the English market, as well as many others that were shipped abroad.
    This is a chiming clock.
    It has 3 trains or sets of wheels that perform separate jobs.
    The centre or “going” train keeps time and provides the power to turn the hands.
    The striking train rings a bell every hour. It is triggered by the going train.
    The chiming train sounds the quarter hour. It is also triggered by the going train.

    Thanks, it's really nice and so interesting, it's amazing to be able to go
    And see something a bit different like this.

    Yeah I defiantly think he is owed credit for that, but you also
    For fixing it, he would be grateful that someone is looking after it ,
    Especially after he has given it so much time and attention :thumb

    Cheers for the extra info, much appreciated : )
