Mast repair and Tower restoration
1. The Timeball mast has been replaced and the mechanism set to work. The ball drops at 1300 daily. There will be a commentated Timeball drop and countdown on New Year’s Eve.
2. The exterior of the Timeball Tower has been restored. The roof has been repaired. The windows and doors have been refurbished and replaced, where necessary. The building is now properly watertight. Some of the internal plasterwork has been removed as a damp reduction measure. The scaffolding will be removed before Christmas.
3. We are not able to open for New Years Day because of continued internal damp reduction measures. We plan to re-open for Easter weekend, 15-18 April 2022.
