Stick & Ribbon

It's Around Nottingham time and here we are back in the Intu Victoria Centre at the Emett Clock - also known as the Aqua Horological Tintinnabulator! This water powered clock was first installed in 1973 on the ground floor of the Victoria Centre after being originally commissioned by Capital and Counties in 1970. It was designed and built by kinetic sculptor Rowland Emett. The Victoria Centre opened in 1972 and the clock was completed in February 1973.
The clock was dismantled in February 2014 by local engineer Pete Dexter. Together with the Rowland Emett Society, he carried out some refurbishment, including raising it's height by 400mm.
The clock was reassembled on the Upper Mall of the Victoria Centre and was officially restarted on 17 June 2015.
At 23 ft in height, this is a magnificent piece known by many in Nottingham as a meeting point.
The clock originally played Rameau's Gigue en Rondeau II from the E-minor suite of Pieces de Clavecin when striking the hour and half hour.
If you fancy making a wish, remember to throw a coin into the fountain! Between 1973 and 2010 around £250,000 were thrown!
