As Peter says the clock has been exhibited a few times in recent years, and in 2016 there were suggestions it would be incorporated within the old mill building at Steam Mills as part of the Northern Quarter development. This FB post gives some detail as well as photos of the clock, I presume it's author Mark Turner is the same person of that name who's mentioned within the Forest Review articles. I've posted a query on FB about the current situation, altho' others are of course free to ask too if you wish.

Spring of this year 2018 demolition and clearance of the general surrounding area took place altho' as far as I'm aware the mill building still stands, as agreed, while surveys are completed.

This building was the steam-driven corn mill built c1840 by Timothy Bennett which gave the Steam Mills area it's name. A little more info is carried within the second post in this prior forum thread;

I have no idea who owns the clock, or where they reside.

PS I do hope it's ok to post these FB links on the forum, sorry if not, especially given the timing wrt Admin's family time etc. I won't be making a habit of it.
