Oakwood Clock

The 109-year-old Oakwood Clock on the edge of Roundhay Park is a reminder of the happy days of their youth for many residents. One resident has told of how the site was a meeting spot for his first date with a young woman who is now his wife. For others, it is the familiar bus stop where they used to get on and off on their way to and from school. Young and old people can be seen every day of the week sitting in the old tram shelter under the clock. It is clear that it has a special place in the hearts of the local community. Many residents are voluntarily giving up their time and money to help back a long-running campaign to get the much-loved clock back to its former glory.
