Interesting but incongruous

Someone's idea to show St. Helier's link to its shipping history, but a bit of a white elephant. Unusual nevertheless and a useful meeting point by the harbour.

A stem clock worked by electricity, now not working at all so only correct time twice a day. Not really a clock at all, just a piece of sculpture!

Don't go out of your way for this one. Not working any more which is a shame as it's mentioned in all of the guide books.

I missed out on this a few months back when I was last in Jersey. It's no longer a steam clock anymore. It used to be steam powered (apparently) when initially commissioned, but today it is electrical. Well, it would be if it worked. That aside it's quite a fun thing to visit and easily found on the waterfront in... More

For such an amazing piece of machinery this is such a shame that it does not work - the clock has stopped and the machinery that is supposed to work on the hour has stopped with it - such a shame

Such a shame that the clock is no longer working. Looks good and is very picturesque. But we were told funding has stopped, so it no longer works !!!!
