The fabulously terrifying “Grasshopper Clock” on the corner of Corpus' Taylor Library is a must-see for any Cambridge visitor. Unveiled to the public in September 2008, this extraordinary feat of new technology now stands proudly facing onto King's Parade; its shining, 24-carat gold dial and gruesome time-keeper, a dazzling addition to the historic city centre.
