FATHER TIME

Father Time is a weathervane at Lord’s Cricket Ground, London, in the shape of Father Time removing the bails from a wicket.

It was given to Lord’s in 1926 by the architect of the Grandstand, Sir Herbert Baker.

The symbolism of the figure derives from Law 16(3) of the Laws of Cricket: “After the call of Time, the bails shall be removed from both wickets.”
