The Ormolu striking clock can be viewed at the Newcastle Gaol Museum.

This beautiful Ormolu clock of French design once played an important role in the story of how the town of Toodyay got it's name.

More than a century ago William Amed Demasson of Keynsham Farm (along Julimar Rd) ordered a clock from a London clockmaker and seller.

Visit the centre to discover how this clock's story assisted in naming the current Toodyay town.
