Many will be familiar with Yarm Clock as it stands proudly above Yarm High Street. And many will have noticed that it was recently silent due to a problem with the hourly “strike” mechanism.

The clock actually has two mechanisms – one to keep the time and the second to strike the bell.

A local resident and volunteer kindly climbs into the roof of the Town Hall every week and “winds up” the mechanism.
