The Wells Cathedral clock is one of the oldest clocks in the world. It's been dated to 1392, although the dial was probably added many years later. The clock has been frequently updated and revised over the years, and the orginal works are now in the London Science Museum, still working (and ringing). In this photo, the time is nearly 09:42.
