Neal's Yard Water Clock


Neal's Yard Water Clock

This is where London's finest automata clock can be seen.

Location: 21-23 Shorts Gardens, Covent Garden, London

Description: This automata clock above the current Holland & Barratt shop was a joint commission with Andy Plant.

Water slowly fills a tube (lower left of ladder) showing the minutes. On the hour, water from a tank on the roof tips a set of cups above the dial, each ringing a bell. The row of figures at the bottom tip their watering cans, filling a tank behind the shop sign.

Inside the tank are plastic flowers on floats, which appear to grow as they are watered. The child figure on the left swings out to water people on the pavement below.
