Unless you're looking in a completely different direction, I think that's the Doncaster Plant Works, where the Mallard and the Flying Scotsmen were built (amongst many other locomotives). Last time I was there in 2003 it was owned by Wabtec and still a going concern, though obviously steam locomotives only go there for overhauls now, their main business is in more modern trains. So the clocks aren't stopped in any symbolic sense. :)

I myself am from Doncaster and I see this clock everyday and everynight on the way to and from work. I personally think it's an outrage it has been out for so long. I always think it's 20 to 12!!!! lol. Something needs to be done! Up the Rovers!

I agree Carter! I also am from Doncaster, and I can't take this clocks errors anymore! It's been out since 2007 and no one has even attempted to fix it. Disgraceful. Also Rovers to win League 1 12/13!
