St Thomas Lewes Clock

Clock tower safety

Our wonderful 350-year-old clock in the church tower has, sadly, fallen silent. The ancient clock itself is okay but the tower’s spiral stair needs urgent safety work. Until this is done  we can’t go up to wind it, and this needs to be done each and every day.

We’re working both with clock experts and the church authorities on a thorough fix for what is the second-oldest turret clock in the county.

Meanwhile, you can still enjoy our Sunday morning bells before service at 9.45am.
