Oxford: a peek from behind the XI of St Mary’s church clock
Oxford: a peek from behind the XI of St Mary’s church clock
Looking across the High Street and towards Merton College Chapel (far left) from the parapet of St Mary's church tower.

The clock is set right at the top of the tower, up to the level of the parapet which runs at the foot of the spire. The XI, XII and I are therefore visible through the stonework of the parapet, giving this unusual vantage point through the clock face.

The photo is taken with a smartphone - the clock is backed by a metal mesh, and only the small lens of the phone fits through the gap; the lens of a standard camera would not be able to avoid the grid of the mesh.
