New Harbour Clock Installed On St Mary’s Quay

The new St Mary’s harbour clock has been unveiled.

It’s a double–sided drum clock inscribed with the name of the harbour and it’s co-ordinates.

Harbourmaster Dale Clarke wanted a clock to allow passengers walking down the quay to see whether they are on time for their boats and it is also visible from vessels entering the harbour.

Dale is hoping that it will become a meeting point. It’ll be illuminated all night and is controlled digitally, so a member of staff won’t have to reset the time when the clocks go back or forward.

Half of the funding came from grants, with the Duchy of Cornwall paying the rest of the costs, as part of the public realm improvements on the harbour.
