Blacksmiths: Roger Foyster and James Spedding.

A special clock, designed with the help of pupils, has been unveiled at Sedgeford Primary School.

All 34 children played a part in the unique project, which was unveiled on Thursday to mark the Ringstead Road school’s 175th anniversary.

The flower-shaped clock has been placed on an outside wall.

The pupils created designs instead of numbers and these included a variety of animals, birds, a spider and an aeroplane.

The stem of the clock also has the anniversary dates – 1838  to 2015.

The clock has been made by artist blacksmiths, Roger Foyster and James and Helen Spedding from Holkham Forge.

The artists spent a day at the school where they worked with the children and staff. The children then visited the forge and helped to create the petals and leaves.

As well as depicting the history of the school, the design encompassed some of the village history. The knot emblem on the clock face illustrated a past archaeological find in a field in the village of an Iron Age gold torc in 1965.

Money for the project came from the National Association of Decorative and Fine Art Societies. The unveiling ceremony included displays and stalls.
