Astronomical Clock (1390)

Medieval astronomical clock (1390) in the north transept, with jousting knights that charge each other every quarter-hour. The scene is announced by a figure called Jack Blandiver, who kicks a couple of bells from his seat high up on the right. Wells Cathedral, Wells, Somerset, England.
