St Thomas Lewes Clock

Clock tower safety

Please, if you can, donate online to help our Church tower’s spiral stair’s urgent safety work, at www.st-thomas-lewes.org.uk/clock  Until it is done we can’t go up to wind our wonderful 350-year-old clock in the tower. This needs to be done each and every day. So, sadly, it has fallen silent.

We’re working to raise funds to improve the tower stair lighting, install a new handrail, and repair stone flooring. When it’s done we shall be inviting Lewes people to apply to be volunteer clock-winders. And to join guided tours to see the clock (reputedly the second-oldest turret clock in Sussex) and the belfry, 55 steps up!

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