Cold Ashby Church Clock
I have a very ancient church clock at one time in the tower of Cold Ashby Church. Is any person interested?
I would give details of this movement which dates back to c1610.
It is now in working order and keeps good time.

Many thanks for your message, Michael.
As a result, I have found your website, the story of the Ashby clock and your excellent photos.
If I am reading 'Round and about Cold Ashby'(May 1995) correctly, the existing clock in the tower was presented by Thomas F Hazlehurst, Squire of Cold Ashby, in 1917. This was probably the 'new' clock you mention - whether this indicates that the Ashby clock was 'retired' at this time or earlier I don't yet know - perhaps you do!

I write to enquire if anyone has a photo
(or photos!) of the Chapel or Wool Barn which
I understand stood on the site of my bungalow
(Trelights) - corner of Crabtree/Church Lanes?
Thank you. Dawn J Grant-Innes. 12.07.2020.

Many thanks for visiting my site, Dawn.
According to ‘Round and About Cold Ashby’ (published 1995) there was ‘a chapel in the village until about 1980. It was on the plot now occupied by the house called Trelights on the corner of Crabtree Lane and Church Lane’.

Hello John,
Thank you for your reply.
My late husband and I moved into
the bungalow (which we named
Trelights) nearly 40 years ago.
Your info. tallies with 'restrictions' in
the deeds. I was puzzled as I have
seen photos only of cottages on the
site. Presumably they pre-date the

Good Evening,
I wonder if anyone has a copy of this book?
I live at Thornby Hall and I am carrying out some research on the Weltden’s and the Hall.
I was hoping with the limits of distancing to be able to find the references and perhaps take some images
Kind regards
