“What a clock!”

Steam Clock - Ariande
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Fascinating clock with pipes and tubes and steam. A very unusual feature and St Helier harbour. It enhanced the area and was quite a talking point with the tourists

I was fascinated by the mixed reviews and had to have a look for myself today.

Just to be clear there are no dancers. There is no steam. On the hour the water bubbles slightly and the ship's wheel spins. That's it. It's a lump of scrap iron in the middle of a concrete walk area which Jersey think so much of they haven't even bothered to provide an explanatory sign saying what it is and why it's there. Seriously, don't bother to cross the two very busy roads to reach it, unless you too want to see nothing with your own eyes!

Waited quite a few minutes for the hour to strike. Not a lot happened some small fountains started in the water and a the steering wheel revolved a little but that was it. Expected it to Steam but it did'nt. Perhaps it was not working properly that day

Came across this in the rain when I was looking for some where else thought it was fab and loved all the seats roundabout with ship names on well worth a look even in the rain
