Visitors to A la Ronde this month have been watching the clocks at the National Trust house being wound and set.
Assistant house steward James Weckmueller, pictured, has been winding the clocks every Sunday at noon.
There are eight clocks in the house and it takes James around 40 minutes to carry out his weekly routine.
The oldest clock in the house, which can be found in its study, dates back to 1760.
James said: “It gives me great joy to keep the A la Ronde clock up and running, engaging with our supporters in the process and to play my part in bringing this unusual, quirky property to life.”
