Clock mechanism, Preston Tower
The two cable winders support two heavy stone weights suspended down through the lower floors, the driving force for the clock and the chimes. There is a notice warning visitors against being in this spot at the time of the hourly chimes. The adjacent large bell is struck very loud.
