Here's a couple from this past week from local golf courses. Both infrared. Sorry about the "Pick Up Carts Here" sign on the second. I might re-crop. Or not. I'm over there pretty often - might be easier to just re-shoot it some day.

The Town Cock. Rochester. Kent. UK. Sept 2020. On the Corn Exchange and recently overhauled.

Edit - A brief extract from a Wiki.
In 1698 the Corn Exchange was started, but as the butchers' market. The present frontage was the gift of Sir Cloudesly Shovell. The existing clock dates from 1771 and replaces an earlier square one. Shovell also left money in his will (1701) to found the Mathematical School.

Ray that's quite some clock.
It doesn't look very Brittish. Is it of other origins, influence?
Doesn't go with the rest of the building, architecture.

Thank you Richard and all who liked my picture.
I hope this thread picks up a bit - I was just going to start a 'Clocks' thread when I found I had been pipped at the post.
I have just re-edited my original post with a few interesting links (Bedtime reading):-)

Not my best picture or preferred lens for this subject but no excuses. I had some better ones in the archive from last year. I will have look.
The colourful bunting is a nuisance for architectural type of photography as it spoils the photograph - the council don't seem bothered to take it down.
Quite a few of the older buildings seem to be of red brick, but I agree with you, it does seem in the wrong country or period.-? There are quite a few 'Cupolas' on the roofs of buildings in this location - I will post a few.
The Cupola above the clock on this building houses a bell.

The 'Cloudesley Shovell' link to the town is interesting. After losing his fleet he'd probably have been hanged at the yardarm for incompetence anyway - just like the 'common sailor' who tried to warn him of the disaster.
BTW, Rochester used to be a city until some internal politics within the council - it seems - lost it's city status.:-(

Just another example of a Cupola in the town. Sept 2020.
