Story

Help us raise £40, 000 to get our clock ticking again!

And carry out important repair works will secure the clock for generations to come.

Union Chapel's clock was made by Thwaites & Reeds in 1888 and was installed here when our tower was completed in 1889. For many years it provided the folk of Islington with the time. But now it's only right twice a day.

The case leaks, which has caused serious rust, and not insubstantial organic growth.

The dials are damaged and the clock face is in very bad condition.

The actual clock mechanism (from 1952 when the clock was electrified) stopped working altogether around 2010...

We want to get it back to full working order but to do this we need your help!

Please help by donating today :-)
