A look at the clock in the Thornton's Arcade in Leeds on Friday 16th January 2015.

The Ivanhoe Clock, at one end of Thornton's Arcade, was built in 1877 by William Potts and Sons of Leeds. Robin Hood, Richard the Lion-Hearted, Friar Tuck and Gurth the Swineherd, all characters in the 19th century novel Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott, feature on the clock. Each character, in turn, marks the quarter hour by striking a large bell with his fists. The life-sized figures were sculpted by Leeds artist John Wormald Appleyard. The 5 bells were provided by John Taylor of Loughborough.
