Update 2 (4th Nov ‘07): Laura let me know that the clock has now been repaired, thanks Laura. From Laura Goddard:

"I attach a photo of the clock on Carfax Tower in Oxford City Centre. It's been stopped for some months now I think. There's a brief bit of info on the Tower (at) wikipedia.

It's in the most prominent position in Oxford, right in the heart of the shopping area and close to the historic University buildings. Everybody congregates round this area, especially tourists and it's a real shame the clock has stopped.

I was there on 18th Sept 2010 and the clock was working but the two men didn't hit the bells. Sad, i used to make my parents stand and wait for them to do it every time we went when i was a child
