Waiting for a number 7 bus – and counting the machine-gun repetitiveness of the number 18’s as they follow each other through town – l happened to hear the Abbey clock bell strike two at 3 o’clock!
Let me explain.
While the hands on the dial were at 3 the time being struck was 2pm. Does this mean only part of the mechanism – the only part of Bath Abbey – belonging directly to B&NES – has not been turned back an hour as British Summer Time comes to an end.
I have seen this clock playing up several times before and l have only lived here for a year and a half! Get a move on guys because Christmas is coming. Up and down the town centre the lights are going up!
Good to see we are saving a bit of money by making do with last year’s baubles. They did look very nice.
Bath’s very own Queen of the kitchen and co-starring judge – with Paul Hollywood – of BBC 2’s Great British Bake Off – Mary Berry will be doing the honours and pulling the switch on Tuesday, November 12th.
It’ll be set up at the city centre end of Milsom Street.
BBC Points West’s Imogen Sellers will compere an evening of entertainment starting at 5.30pm and all in support of the RUH Forever Friends Appeal. The event is organised by Bath Business Improvement District.
