This is an interesting looking clock. It looks like a small Mississippi steam boat. When we were there it seemed to have run out of steam. Nevertheless, it looked interesting and probably looks better when working.

The Jersey steam clock is a replica of the centre section of a paddle steamboat named the Ariadne! At first glance this clock looks interesting, but it isn’t old (commissioned and built in 1996), it doesn’t work and is a fake that doesn’t even run...More

It no longer works and was told it was very expensive to erect. So not much to say about it really! A quick glance but not interesting.

We came upon this clock whilst walking around the harbour. It is on the roadside of the maritime museum. We never actually noticed that it was a steam clock but I think there is a plaque actually telling you about the clock.

As others have said its a clock that doesn't work. I understand that there have been many comments from the locals about this. I came I saw, I left. I won't be back. Its more hype than anything else

Great to look at & set in a very prominent position. However, it doesn't work & there is no information plaque. Shame really.

This steam clock sounds like something worth seeing. Unfortunately it does not work and there is no information available about its provenance. Such a pity.

We came across this "attraction" but there was no information near it to tell us what it was also if it was/is a clock it wasn't working when we were there - such a shame.
