Sitting in a boatyard near Aberdyfi is a work of art, a 25-foot-high clock.
Built by Andy Plant and commissioned by Walk the Plank in 1996, the curved 25′ high galvanized steel structure was designed to enhance the Fitzcarraldo, the ship it was once mounted on, and to entertain on the hour.
When on the Fitzcarraldo this clock would erupt with whistles and fog horns sounding, smoke would blow North, South, East and West from four jets. The crows nest would rise revealing more smoke and two spinning gold fish, as they spun faster water squirted from their mouths, spiralling down onto the audience.
The clock is being refurbished but unfortunately does not work (parts of it do and parts of it don't) and currently is switched off much of the time.
The cache is NOT inside the clock, don't go inside as there are live electrics and moving parts in there.
While you are here why not walk carefully to the foreshore and take in the view; I think this is the most beautiful estuary in Wales. Don't go in the water here though, the tide here is extremely strong.
