Neglected Structures & Overgrown Places #06 — Defunct Garden Clock

Garden Clock

I wonder whether this clock ground to a halt at 6.30 in the morning or evening and what time of year it happened. Perhaps it was summer, so the gardener was outside and missed his breakfast or tea as a result. Maybe it gave up the ghost at the same moment as someone died, a bit like the grandfather clock in the well-known song written by Henry Clay in 1876.

  1. Now it’s right twice a day. Interesting thought though.

  3. Reminds me of the poem ‘Nearly Four’ by Jeremy Lloyd. A teddy bear thinks that it’s always nearly tea time as he looks at the old clock, both of them on the rubbish dump, and he won’t know that the children have abandoned him until it reads gone four *sob*

  4. I love the way your mind went, wondering when the clock stopped, why and what impact it would have had…
