Sometimes it feels like you are hanging about for ages to get the job done.
On other occasions the time simply flies by.
And that’s certainly the case for the brave souls who were charged to carry out repairs to Sheffield Town Hall’s famous clock.
The work is part of a £2.2 million restoration scheme to repair the building, which dates from 1897.
The condition of the 64m tower at the Grade I listed building has deteriorated in recent years, due to its exposed position.
The work is being carried out by main contractors Maysand, in conjunction with Sheffield Council and Kier.
Manchester-based Maysand have also worked on the restoration of Sheffield City Hall, the city’s Catholic Cathedral, Blackpool’s Winter Gardens, Manchester City Art Gallery, the Port of Liverpool Building, Manchester’s Chetham’s School of Music and Chester’s city walls.
