This church is pretty big and it has a 'hanging' clock face in the street. But the tower also has clock faces that tell the time. Worth a look.

I've never seen a clock like the one outside the church. The way they hang the clock, it's an eye-catcher. The chucrch self was not open when we're there, on sunday afternoon. So, we passed the church and took some pictures.
