Southwold Pier

A wee little time spent here
is worth the wait!


Watch the water show every 30 minutes…
'The boys drop their trousers and pee, missing the loo'

Made in three weeks in 1998 by Tim Hunkin and Will Jackson, to an impossibly tight budget, the Water Clock was designed as a feature about water recycling, sponsored by Thames Water. The water is pumped up to the top of the clock from the pond and it was originally this water that then powered the cheeky antics that happen on the half hour. The hands and pendulum are now powered electrically. All the copper on the clock comes from old hot water cylinders.
