This was the scene yesterday as workmen carried out essential repairs to a historic town centre clock.

The tricky thing about the job was that the ancient timepice was at the top of the tower of St Peter’s Church in Berkhamsted.

Nevertheless the repairmen got up the side of the landmark site, which dates back to the thirteenth century, and all is now in good, working order.
