I went to Hampton Court, but did not hear about the clock. Thanks for the great video

Quite an impressive piece of machinery!

My husband loves clocks and he stood for a long time watching the Hampton Court clock. He prefers, however, the "knights on horseback" clock at Wells Cathedral.

Hampton Court is one of my most favorite places. I used to love sitting by the river bank in the summer and watching boats along the river.
