Arthuret Parish Council Clock, Longtown Cumbria

Arthuret Parish Council Clock, Longtown Cumbria

Unveiled on the 12 March 2000 this clock on the High Street in Longtown is in memory of Councillor Allan Forsyth.

A small plaque beneath the clock describes something of the history of why the clock is here.

The clock has two faces which look up and down High Street in Longtown.

When we visited, January 2010, two times were being shown depending on what face you looked at. This may indicate that the clock is worked from two separate mechanisms or may have some other faults.

Longtown is right at the edge of England and Scotland. It is around 6miles from Carlisle on the A7
