MAST REPAIR UPDATE – 11 October 2021

Mast repair

The mast was replaced today. Over the next two days the mechanism will be re-assembled. The plan is for the Timeball to be working by Wednesday 13th October.


We are not able to open for safety reasons whilst the building is clad in scaffolding. It is planned to remove the scaffolding in early December. Therefore we will not be able to open for the October half term, 24th-29th October.

We next plan to open on New Year’s Day 2022 from 1130-1430. We will of course have a commentary and countdown to midnight on New Year’s Eve this year. We will have a more formal re-opening at Easter 2022.
