I do love unusual clocks.

This unusual clock called The Hastings Clock stands proudly in Rotherham and was erected in 1912 to commemorate the Coronation of King George V & Queen Mary on 22 June 1911.

I did wonder what the relevance of the hooves were under the large planter.

After doing a little research I came across this blog called ‘Memorial Drinking Fountains’ which explained it wasn’t only a clock tower, but also a drinking fountain.

The large planter was a drinking receptacle for horses, (hence the hooves).  There are smaller planters around the other side which were water fountains for the people of Rotherham to enjoy a drink of water.
