Above the clock face is a miniature castle with towers and crenellation, and featuring the Royal coat of arms. The clock was designed by Neil Glasser and made by Thwaites and Reed of Hastings, England. It features six scenes about English royalty, including King John signing the Magna Carta in 1215.
