St. Mark, on Worsley Brow. To quote from Mike, "The clock on the West face of the tower is known as the Bridgewater Clock, and is famous because it strikes 13 at one o'clock. This device was invented by the Duke of Bridgewater, when his workmen excused their lateness at resuming work after the dinner hour because they maintained they could not hear the clock strike once at one o'clock. The clock was originally sited in Worsley Works Yard (now Worsley Green), and was presented to St Mark's Church in 1946 by the Earl of Ellesmere to mark the Church's Centenary celebrations.".
