I LOVED ‘Further Cheshire Curiosities’! What a delight it was to sit in the comfort of my own home and learn fascinating stories about familiar places, as well as to learn about other places that weren’t familiar at all.
I was especially delighted to discover that Cheshire has a church with a one-handed clock. I have been reading a book about the history of time (‘Shaping the Day’ by Paul Glennie and Nigel Thrift) and was interested to learn that the earliest church clocks were single handed. I knew that there is a surviving example in Kent, but didn’t dream that there was another here in Cheshire.
I will be watching this film over and over, as well as buying the others in the series.
Oyez! I hereby proclaim unto ye my loud congratulations on a great job!
