Beautiful clock. How do they keep these church clocks wound?

Unfortunately many of the old mechanical clock mechanisms have been removed and replaced with modern electric clocks that are radio controlled. The radio signal is picked up from the Anthorn transmitting station in Cumbria, which broadcasts a time signal from atomic clocks.

Some of the remaining mechanical clocks have been fitted with automatic winding units.

It's a great pleasure to see so many wonderful clocks! I'm a great fun of clocks:)
Have a nice day

Oh wow! What an exquisite church! See now, you like clocks but I ♥ churches. The older, more ruined the better but I also like very old, very intact churches too. Stunning.

A very beautiful place, I like the image of the church surrounded by its cemetery.
And I like the clock too, although I would prefer it had the mechanical machinery.
