Artist's Description

The village of Abinger was once a very important centre of the wealden iron industry and this is commemorated by its most notable landmark, the clock which overhangs the main road. This portrays the figure of “Jack the Blacksmith”, who strikes the hour with his hammer. The clock bears the motto “By me you know how fast to go”. The clock was given in memory of the first Lord Farrer of Abinger Hall who died in 1899. The clock represents the iron industry and the role played by the county of Surrey in the industrial past.1 The striking hammer has been out of order since 2005.
