Telling the time in Norwich

Category: Articles of Interest

The Norwich Society’s Civic Environment Committee usually carries out an audit or survey each year. In 2017 we decided to look at public clocks and sundials. In this digital age, with phones and watches, it may seem that the need for public clocks has been superseded but the City has a surprising number, many of historical interest and still popular with the public.

This project has been undertaken by the members of the Norwich Society Civic Environment Committee : Alan ‘Theo’ Theobald, John Trevelyan, Jonathan Hooton, Kate Nash, Michael Cross, Roy Holmes, Sue Pike and Sue Roe.
