Daily Images | Salisbury Cathedral Clock

Daily Images – the Salisbury Cathedral Clock might not look like a clock but supposedly dating from about 1386, it is claimed to be the oldest working clock in the world. The clock is one of the group of 14th to 16th century clocks to be found in the West of England. Other clocks from the 14th century, the first century in which the mechanical clock flourished throughout Europe, such as those at Rouen (Gros Horloge), Paris (Heinrich von Wick clock) or Dijon (the clock taken by Philippe le Hardy from Courtrai in 1382), have either been lost, destroyed, or substantially modified.
