Andrew it is amazing we both have post about England..The clock is great
Gosia, yes, what a coincidence.
Hope you had the chance to look around Fortnum and Mason when you were here.
We didn't Fun60, nor Harrods, not even Waitrose. I guess such places are used to badly dressed tourists. I felt quite comfortable in one British institution, Boots on The Strand.
The clock is cute. The spiral is unique and looks ok as it's different.
WA, a little like a child's addition to the church. Quite whimsical.
The spire has a lot of charm - and fits in well with English eccentricity. I am very glad that for whatever reason they decided not to tear it down and start again.
EC, not torn down, along with another less that perfect tower in Italy.
Chesterfield couches! Scotts Edwardian Abode had Fortnum's hampers round the Christmas tree. That clock would blend into the decor there as well, and the cats would be all over it.There is another of Twaithes & Reed's clocks hanging in the QVC Sydney en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Clock. Thanks Andrew, I always learn something new here.
Em Stacks, Scott's Christmas arrangement was very impressive. I've seen the QVC clock and I can't say I was that impressed by it. I did not know the manufacturer was of some note.
I love medieval churches, especially early ones like Chesterfield. Given a number of mid 14th century buildings fell down altogether, the twisted spire is a bit charming :) And noteworthy!
Hels, I find the interiors are often a bit gloomy but the exteriors are wonderful.
That church spire would make you look twice . The clock is charming.
Diane, the clock is quite lovely. I like the very slight and gently bow.
I love that twisted spire, looks like a Wizard's hat. Maybe it's the Wizard's Church? I like that clock too.If I ever get to England I'm definitely going into those very posh stores for a look-see.
River, it is quite weird and I see what you mean about being a wizard's hat.
Silly me. I thought it was photographic distortion!! In my defence, it WOULD have been if I'd been the one taking the pic!
Au contraire Red. You take very good photos but if you thought it was a distortion, you must have had some interesting cameras.
Haha! The spire reminds me of my sister's new chilli grinder which in turn reminds me of.. oh well never mind!
Ahem. Whatever could you mean, Grace.
