Train to Kettering
Train to Kettering, adjusting a clock in Syston. Sten Hanson from the LP The Sonosopher Retrospective (Alga Marghen). Train to Leicester, broke down in Kettering, various announcements and then changed trains after some confusion. The clock in Syston was a prize for long distance running awarded to William Cross, Sandra's grandfather, in Corby some time in the 1930s. The clock is now in a house in Syston, Leicestershire and needs rewinding frequently as we all do. This clock's chiming is the signature tune for Wavelength.
