The oft photographed "Dent" clock with new artwork. What it represents I've yet to ascertain. This clock is an exact replica of the original. In the 1980s a rich American planned to buy the original clock from British Rail for £250,000 but while being lowered it dropped and smashed! However the clock survived thanks to a railway engineer from Nottingham who, with the aid of a wheelbarrow and £25, he brought the parts home and painstakingly put it back together. the original clock now adorns the side of his barn! And not a lot of people know that!!!

Howdy Carl...... I reckon that if the couple had made a move..... then the snoozing geezer would have keeled over and collapsed into a heap on the ground !.. that would have made a great movie....Eh what.../...Dave

See previous comments re landings on Juno Beach.

A memorial to the "Glorious Liberators", D-Day tribute to the Allies.

One of the superb memorials at Juno Beach this one commemorating the return to French soil from England of General de Gaulle on 14th June 1944 following the Allied D-Day invasion.

This lighthouse was built in 1866 near the Canal from Caen to the sea.

The picturesque port near Juno Beach.
