The market tower in Lewes, built in the late 1700s, was erected to house the town clock and a 16th century bell named Gabriel. Both the bell and the clock came from the nearby St Nicholas Church when it was demolished in 1761. The tower stands above the historic Lewes market place where a successful Friday market now takes place. Many of the stall holders from the market have been photographed for my local food producers project. The clock’s original mechanisms have been maintained over the past 220 years, as has the necessity for it to be wound every 48 hours.
