Devon: Ottery St Mary Astronomical Clock



Philip Strange, in The Marshwood Magazine - "St Mary’s Church, a magnificent building, a mini-cathedral. There is much to see within the church but one of its more unusual features is the ancient astronomical clock. As well as telling the time, it also shows the age and phase of the moon, and it has done so for more than five centuries. This beautiful clock is a rare example of medieval craftsmanship and gives us a unique insight into life many centuries ago".
