Oh, my, Barb! I can't believe you're asking this either! Where exactly are you in the clock tower?
It's been several years since I've played, but I'm remember coming inside the tower and dodging the pendulum, going down some stairs and having to stay in the shadows all the time. Had to get to a door to the outside - sunlight! - and make a mad dash to the left of the door and then down some stairs. Had to take some damage. Then there was a lot of fighting in a room in front of the stairs that went down to the lower level.
Heading out to the gardens...
