The clock was maintained by the college which was very expensive, £800 a visit from the expert who maintained it. 

The building has now been sold to a developer so it is no longer the responsibility of the college and the developer hasn't bothered.

I'm sure it was stopped for quite a few years  - then somebody decided to try to get it 'fixed'.  That did actually work for a short while, but it's been like this for absolutely ages now.

Not a good impression on entering the town along one of the main routes in!

It's a shame as the clock was a feature of the town seen from many areas and a significant landmark over the years. I loved it as a child when I travelled into the town centre with Mum. Nowadays I live within sight of it but it seems to have been broken for years. Be nice to see it working again
