Exeter Cathedral Astronomical Clock -

This was taken last year, but is in the city I live in . To quote from Wikipedia - The clock is one of the group of famous 14th- to 16th-century astronomical clocks to be found in the West of England. The main, lower, dial is the oldest part of the clock, dating from 1484. The fleur-de-lys 'hand' indicates the time (and the position of the sun in the sky) on a 24-hour analogue dial. The numbering consists of two sets of I-XII Roman numerals. The silver ball and inner dial shows both the age of the moon and its phase (using a rotating black shield to indicate the moon's phase). The upper dial, added in 1760, shows the minutes.
