The theft is believed to have taken place between November 10-17 and has been reported to Surrey Police.

Club member Peter Williams said: “The clock has been in place since the 1960s as a tribute to a former club captain and is much valued by river users and walkers as a visible timepiece and landmark. It is quirky and might re-appear in the trade.”

Club president Malcolm Knight added: “As with many items it isn’t of any great monetary value but it is most certainly of sentimental value to the club and is part of our 100-year history.”
