    The Church of Mary Magdalene (on the Whitgift side of the border between Whitgift and Reedness) has a clock with an unusual feature. Instead of 12 (XII in Roman numerals) it has a 13 (XIII). Reasons vary, but local rumour relates that it may be due to the church being adjacent to a pub (now closed) at which the painter imbibed before completing the job.
