This clock, which for over four hundred years has recorded the passing of the hours for the towns-people of Rye, was made during the years 1560-2 by a man from Winchelsea named Lewys Billiard. The Churchwarden's accounts show the cost to have been £33.18.0. which would have been about £250 today. It is said to be the oldest turret clock still operational with its original works in England.

The dial and Quarter Boys date from the year 1700. The pendulum beats but once in two and a quarter seconds. It is dated 1810.

In 1958 the clock was cleaned for the first time in thirty two years.
