This is when the clocks go back this October


It’s the time of year when British Summer Time officially ends.

The clocks go back and we edge closer to winter, nights start to draw in and it gets darker a lot earlier.

With the clocks going back an hour that means the following morning we get an extra hour in bed.

The clocks will go back at 2am on Sunday 25th OCtober.


Remember to change any battery clocks manually otherwise you may miss out an the extra hour in bed.

 Smartphones will do this automatically so there’s no need to alter your phones time when you wake up the following morning.

William Willett campaigned for the changing of the clocks and published a pamphlet, called the Waste of Daylight, in 1907.

Britain first adopted British Summer Time during World War One in order to save fuel by reducing the need for artificial light.
