Visit the war memorial clock

Here’s a one-off chance to go up the South Kilworth church tower to see the village’s first world war memorial clock and check out the superb view. The church itself is beautiful and over 900 years old.

The War Memorial clock is quite unique because there are very few four-sided church clocks in existence. It was installed 100 years ago this November, following fund raising by villagers. The dials, one on each of the compass points, are mounted on the base of the spire, above the tower. There is an associated wooden board in the porch listing those from South Kilworth who had given their lives in the First World War.

On Saturday 13thNovember, the day before Remembrance Sunday, you can take a guided tour up the church spire and climb the stairs to the best view of the surrounding countryside for miles. If you are interested, send an email to: and we will get back to you with available times.
