The Jewellery Quarter’s 117-year-old Chamberlain Clock will be removed this month for extensive repairs and restoration. A key landmark of the Jewellery Quarter, it has now fallen into a state of disrepair. The project is being joint funded by our project via the National Lottery Heritage Fund, and the JQBID.
