UU Clock: A New Square for Becky B

Today, we actually got outside with cameras. It wasn’t raining and for a few hours, it was partly sunny. It was cold, but not bitter … and I needed prescriptions and some food. I’ve been waiting for the beginning of the month and the arrival of money and pickings were getting a bit thin.

Phew. We made it.

Uxbridge was holding its annual Christmas Parade, so not only did we get my prescription and groceries, but we got a place to park. We took about 300 pictures of the Commons as they were getting ready to start the parade.

And then … I saw the clock and a tower! I took pictures! Oddly, it came out square. I forgot that the only part of the old church that still functions is the clock.

Time on the steeple. Anyone want to buy a church? This one is for sale.

    1. It’s such a beautiful church. The problem is that it isn’t heated and it has no parking, unless you park at the library next door. And it is small. I hoped someone would buy it and fix it up, but it’s going downhill fast … but the clock still works!


      1. Oh I hope someone does fall in love with it and has the pennies to restore. Do you think there are any restrictions on what it’s next life can be?


  1. That is a nice church and unusual that the clock still works as at the old churches I see usually the clock is usually not working. I believe that the type that several of our old churches use have to be sent to England to be repaired.


  2. What strikes me is the anachronism of a PUBLIC clock in a world where you can no longer find one. No clocks anywhere. Even time has become privatized. The disappearance of public clocks goes hand-in-hand with the retreat from the Common. BTW, this comment is made by an anachronism. I don’t own a cell phone. Don’t want one. I prefer the village clock that reminds us of our common human frailty in the midst of real time.
