This beautifully decorated clock is sited in the north transept of York Minster and was built in 1749 by local clockmaker Henry Hindley who had workshops in Petergate and later Stonegate. The two oak figures known as Gog and Magog are older than the clock (approx 400 years old) and they strike the chimes with their pikestaffs every quarter hour. The chimes can be heard throughout the Minster.
