Cheltenham's wishing fish clock back in action
A 45-foot-tall wishing fish clock which has been enchanting children for decades has returned from repairs.
The timepiece features an illusion of a goose that appears to lay a never-ending stream of golden eggs and a family of mice trying to evade a snake.
On the half hour the clock, in Cheltenham's Regency Arcade, plays a tune - on the hour a large wooden fish blows bubbles.
The clock was designed by the Gloucestershire-based artist Kit Williams who wrote the 1979 book Masquerade which led readers on the hunt for a golden hare hidden somewhere in the UK.
