Clock restorer Tim Reynolds had to abseil down the clock tower at Osborne House to fix the clock which had stopped. He tells us what a difficult job it was.
Queen Victoria's private beach where she first took a swim in the sea is to be opened to the public for the first time this summer. The stretch of seafront at Osborne, the monarch's seaside home on the Isle of Wight, has never been accessible to the general public.
But now English Heritage has restored Victoria's original bathing machine to the site prior to its opening on July 27. Osborne House, near East Cowes, was a popular retreat for Victoria who enjoyedfamily holidays at the seaside mansion.
She wrote in 1845: "We have quite a charming beach to ourselves."As well as being the first place that she swam in the sea, it was where herchildren learned to swim.
