Should we stop the clock?
As we prepare to close the house for the season, join specialists from a range of disciplines as they debate whether we should stop the 300-year-old Harrison clock to preserve its original parts or replace components to keep it ticking.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
"A clock isn't a clock if it doesn't tell the time." "Whatever will be will be; don't repair it. Respect it." Out of hundreds of comments we've received this year, these are just a couple of thoughts from visitors to The Clock Stops exhibition. Not decided yourself? Drop in to the debate to hear from experts in conservation and horology as well as a Nostell volunteer as they give their opinions about the fate of this historic treasure.

What is Gift Aid?
Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points. Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:
- Gift Aid Admission or
- Standard admission
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you the Gift Aid Admission prices. But it's entirely up to you which ticket you choose. If you want the Standard Admission instead, just let us know when you come to pay.
Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid* — an extra 25 per cent — potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below: Payment of the additional percentage donation is entirely voluntary, so if you prefer to pay the standard admission please advise our reception staff at the till point.
|Amount paid by visitor||£11.00||£10.00|
|Tax refund from Government*||£2.75||£0.00|
|Total received by the National Trust||£13.75||£10.00|
*Gift Aid donations must be supported by a valid Gift Aid declaration and a Gift Aid declaration can only cover donations made by an individual for him/herself or for him/herself and members of his/her family.
