What time is it, Eccles?

This is the Spurriergate Centre clock, a pretext for referring you to the Goons' sketch in which the above question is answered. Spurriergate takes its name from the craftsmen who used to make spurs on this street. The centre is part of St Michael's church, for which follow the label. As well as a decent self-service restaurant, there are Fair Trade goods on sale, and staffworkers to give training and couselling.


  1. I love clocks on old buildings. That one looks terrific, particularly with the windows near it.

  2. I enlarged the photo to take a better look at the clock — it's beautiful!

    And yes, do please take a photo of 1 and a half Whip ma whop ma gate. That name is just so crazy, I'm absolutely intrigued!
