Time on Woodhouse Lane

Church Clock LeedsPicture of church clock on the former Blenheim Baptist Church - Woodhouse Lane, Leeds.

This large clock is on the former Blenheim Baptist Church - Woodhouse Lane in Leeds.

The building is no longer a church and now houses the offices of the Leeds branch of UNISON. The church dates from around 1858, a time when the local populace would have found this large clock a useful timepiece in the days before universal watch ownership.

  1. I often think that, if I were suddenly very rich and became a public benefactor, I'd re-instate and re-introduce beautiful big clocks around the country. Now people tend to tell the time from mobile phones instead of from watches, they might even be useful - we could glance up, rather than fiddle around.
