Tourists Driven Cuckoo By Chiming Clock
While thousands of tourists descend upon the small English town of Bishop's Castle each year, many apparently vow never to return after spending sleepless nights listening to the chime of the city's clock.
The bells in the clock tower chime not just on the hour, but every 15 minutes -- regardless of whether it's day or night.
However to locals, the musical clock is part of the town's character and many say they're lulled to sleep by the reassuring chimes. "I always sleep better when I can hear it. It is definitely part of the town and it would be a real shame to see it go," argued one resident.
Would a chiming clock drive you bonkers when traveling, or is preserving the character of the destination more important?
