Laughton's clock was donated by William Mannington of Laughton Place in 1872. Nowthe clock dial and mechanism is in need of restoration in order to save this historic piece of Laughton's history

Laughton Delivery stage

pledged of £5,423

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

The clock dial and mechanism have been a part of the history of the school for 150 years but following a period of neglect are now in poor condition. Having been looked at by a local clock engineer we would like to raise the money necessary to save the clock.

What we'll deliver:

  • Restore the clock dial and mechanism back to what it looked like in 1872

Why it's a great idea:

We have just received £8200 to rebuild the bell tower which was rotting, but we are still missing the funding to restore the clock alongside this. I think this is the opportune moment to restore the clock and restore this crucial part of Laughton's past so that it can be a part of Laughton's future for generations to come.

Steps to get it done:

  • Once the funding is complete the clock engineer will be brought in to do the necessary work
