what we do

Both the clocks that are for sale, and our customers clocks are sympathetically conserved and restored as appropriate by skilled and experienced clockmakers  in our large 18th century workshop beneath the Galleries in Lewes. All the  clocks are given a long guarantee and customers are welcome to visit the workshop to see the work as it progresses to completion.

Lantern clocks

We have always specialised in Lantern clocks from the early 17thC pre-pendulum era right through to the end of the century and have held two Catalogued Exhibitions of some truly exceptional pieces over the last 15 years. A few catalogues are still available to purchase from the shop. Just a few very fine examples by these early makers are usually on display.
