Renewing Owd Josh
The decorations are already up on Hyde Town Hall.
The clock and bells in Hyde Town Hall were donated by Joshua Bradley in 1884 and known affectionately as "Owd Josh".
Photographs of the inside of the clock tower can be found at Hyde, Cheshire.
Two of the clockfaces are being removed for cleaning and general restoration. This shows the the southern face partially dismantled.
A photograph of the northern face of the clock can be found on Hyde Daily Photo.
It should be back looking new again before too long.
