Photographs or memories of Daybrook station clock

Recommended Posts

I have the longcase "grandfather" clock which was located at Daybrook station and wondered if anyone has either a photograph or remembers seeing it 'in situ' at the station?. The dial is written: DAYBROOK No.46 L.N.E. (G.N.)

Hi there, yes I remember that clock even today, saw it many, many as a young lad. We used to regularly go on a train to Basford station to visit my gran or go to town on a train as a treat, Victoria station. Later when I was eleven or so I and a couple of mates made friends with the signal man and were allowed to go in the box when no one was about. Have many happy memories of Daybrook station.

Was that signalman Wilfred Marriot by any chance?
