Oakwood Clock, 5am

Oakwood clock, by Roundhay Park, Leeds 8

Oakwood Clock

I went for a walk when it got light and came to Oakwood. The streets were deserted and the sun was about to burst over the horizon. I sat down on a bench and drew the clock.
Built in 1904 by William Potts & Sons, the clock tower spent its first 8 years in the new Leeds Market Hall. The markets were very popular and soon expanded, so in 1912 the clock was moved to its present location here in Leeds 8, at the edge of Roundhay Park.
The metalwork is rusting and the clock has been neglected by its current owners, Leeds City Council. But somebody cares – Oakwood Traders & Residents Assoc (OTRA) have raised the money needed to restore the clock. More info here.
