Black Forest Organ Clock

The Black Forest Organ Clock is located in our Picture Gallery at Nuneaton Museum & Art Gallery. It is a lovely mid nineteenth century clock which originally came from Bavaria, a southeastern state in Germany. It was bought and renovated by local man, Fred Hogg, who was the mill manager of Nuneaton Timber Company until 1956. The clock was donated to the Museum in 1962 and was restored to working order in 2015.

Yesterday, we were visited by a clock restorer who has carefully taken away part of the clock for further conservation work. He will be restoring a small part of the mechanism to enable the chimes to run correctly in time with the clock.
