    Excellent. What has happened to St Helens Clock Bell? I was by the Tower today at 12 noon when it struck 12 times, I could hardly hear it.

    There is nothing wrong with the clock at st Helens. It depends entirely on where you are standing..if you are close to the tower, you won’t hear it as loud from 30ft away because of the angle of the louvres. A new clock bell was installed recently to make it a bit louder and this project was successfully achieved.
