This was an interesting piece of history, although it would have been lovely to see it working! Worth a visit if you're in St. Helier

Looked this exhibit out especially while in St. Helier only to find that it was not working. It looks really quirky so please fix it!

This bizzare clock is near the seafront in St Helier and it is a quite strange clock working with steam. You can watch some minutes and see how it is working and read some explanations.

I have taken lots of photos of this steam clock as I first thought it was a boat. Lovely and colourful and easy to find. It is set within a lovely seating area were the benches have names of boats on them. A great way...More
