The Clock That Changed the World

Harrison Clock 1727

Of international scientific importance, the Harrison Clock is only one of only three precision pendulum clocks made by John Harrison and instrumental in solving the Longitude problem.

The clock was made in 1727 with an amazing fully working wooden mechanism. Plans are in place to display it as part of an interpretive display at Leeds City Museum.
