This old steam powered clock no longer works and looks a bit the worse for wear. The sign warning of the danger of hot steam was out of date. Worth a look if you are passing close by but otherwise don’t bother

This does look very impressive and a great piece of engineering - it would have been better if there was more information about it though to learn about the history

For as long as I have known this white elephant (and elephants have a long memory), I have never seen to work properly! Why the states of Jersey invested £100,000s in this and then can't even make the clocks work, I will never understand!

!2 months since I was on the Island and still the clock doesn't work. Makes an impressive bit of engineering look neglected.

I thought it was a steam boat from a far, then when walking nearer it says what it is . Very quirky . Shame about it not working.

I remember it working. It’s just an expensive imposing sculpture these days. Such a shame there’s no funding for repair.

A steam clock that shows the wrong time,not much use really,still,its at the harbour,by the Maritime Museum,worth a piccy or two and also to learn the hours of the various "watches"on a ship.
