What's on

Horology specialist Jonathan Betts caring for Nostell's John Harrison clock

Should we stop the clock? 

As our Clock Work celebrations start to wind down, we're holding a special debate on Sunday 29 October; the last day the house is open before Christmas. Hear specialists from a range of disciplines give their opinions on whether we should stop the Harrison clock to preserve it or start to replace parts to keep it ticking.
