Shoppers in Windsor Road – according to the Penarth Town Clock – are now in a different time-zone to Albert Road, Windsor Terrace and Stanwell Road .
Whilst the latter three have been indicating Greenwich Mean Time – the dial facing Windsor Road has been consistently showing the time in Newfoundland – which is three a half hours behind GMT.
The 30-year-old clock was originally presented to Penarth by the local Rotary Club in 1987 – but from time to time some clock’s four faces fail to agree with each other .
The clock, which is driven by mains electricity, is also often affected by the weather – particularly the cold.
Penarth Town Council is responsible for its maintenance.
