    1. I believe the inside of the clock can be reached through a locked door up a lot of steps inside the clock tower, Linda. A little like how they change the time of the clock at the Elizabeth tower (where Big Ben is located) in London. Easy when you know how.

      1. Whew – that is good because it would be dangerous otherwise. I could not imagine that they would have been able to put some type of battery-operated device on the clock’s mechanisms.

  1. Is the tower gaining girth as it gains height? Amazing building. On the same subject, at the Royal naval Dockyard in Bermuda they have twin clock towers: a four sided liar with the “current time” while the other clock tower has the time of the next high tide. All the best.

  2. Wow, Hugh, St David’s cathedral is amazing, started in 1180 and still standing, truly a testament to the materials used in its construction. The clock still works, although it was added in the modern era at some point. Are any sundials on the grounds? Or better yet, any stone circles? BTW, my post auto-tweeted–I’m keeping an eye on posts now.

    1. There is not much of the original cathedral still standing, Terri. But there has always been a building on the site since the cathedral’s construction started in 1180. In fact, St David founded a monastery on the site around 550AD, so the site’s history goes back even further. Some of the monastery’s relics were placed near the high altar within the cathedral. The central tower collapsed twice over the next century. And an earthquake in 1248 did a lot of damage to the building too.

      I did not see any sundials, but the inside of the building was amazing too. Lots of stained glass windows and plenty of history to take in.

    2. Terri, I forgot to mention that WordPress tweeted this morning that auto-sharing to Twitter is still working and for us to make the most of it while it is. It could get cut off by Twitter at any moment, especially given that WordPress has walked away from negotiations.

  3. What an impressive cathedral. And I can tell the time the picture was taken! To think, only Native Americans were wandering around over here in the 1100’s.

    1. Building on the cathedral in this picture started in 1180, Liesbet. Hard to believe that parts of it are almost 900 years old, yet some new windows we fitted last year didn’t last 12 months and had to be replaced!
      Good to hear you’re seeing buildings like this in Colombia. Enjoy them.
