Object History

This clock came to us from a relative of a Signalman and latterly a Signals Inspector on Eastern Region, who believes that the clock was installed in the Thorpe Junction Signal Box outside Norwich. Official railway records show that this serial number replaced clock number 3705 which was condemned on 18th June 1956. Also that it was under the control of the Aylsham station master, indicative of a location in The Aylsham signal box. (about half an hour from Thorpe junction).

Object Condition

The movement is overhauled, and guaranteed for 3 years.
