Restoration time! St Leonard’s Clock

We braved the hottest day of the year so far to climb St Leonard’s Church overlooking busy Shoreditch. We stood face to (clock) face to inspect the beautifully gilded Roman numerals with Melvyn Lee, Director of Thwaites & Reed. The clock’s 18th century mechanism had long stopped working and become a pigeon nesting site – the project will be securing it for the future.
