The Gwalchmai Memorial clock was originally installed in 1914 by JB Joyce & Co of Whitchurch, part of Smith of Derby Group, to commemorate those lost in World War I and it also has a separate plaque with names of soldiers killed in World War II.
Our clock restorers are currently undertaking a full dial restoration and overhaul of the clock movement. This clock restoration project is a result of a site visit that revealed the need for critical clock repair work.
The clock will be fully restored in pur works and will involve blasting the dials to remove the rust, applying a zinga primer undercoat and a finish in black gloss. The clock dials will then be re-glazed in an opal acrylic.
