Time is standing still at the Abbey

The Hexham Abbey clock is stuck at 3.15 for some time now but will be repaired soon: full story here:
Locals have started discussing whether this is a "Back to the Future" moment - but in reality the metal of the crank and strengthening arm has failed, and it should be repaired soon. I spoke to Canon Graham Usher of the Abbey on Wednesday and the work to the rest of the Abbey continues. It is a wonderful place and should be visited soon if you have not already been - whether you wish to come to visit to worship or simply because you wish to visit one of Northern England's finest church buildings.
