It took place on July 1st 2009 at Upton Hall. Tel 01636 813 795
 
"Time and Place" An exhibition by the Antiquarian Horological Society at the Museum of the History of Science, Oxford, ran from 25th November 2006 to 15th April 2007. Covers English Country (not London) Clocks 1600-1840. It was pleasing to note that 5 of the 68 clocks chosen for this pivotal exhibition had been through our workshops!
 
"BHI 150th". 2008 was the Horological Institute's 150th year and the Institute threw a huge show. We exhibited there again and were pleased to see many of our customers and to see the lectures, auctions, unveiling of the three pendulum Project 150 clock, the BHI tourbillon watch goes on sale, stonking raffle with prizes from Rolex, Mont Blanc and others... since then we have exhibited every year.
 
There will be another big show next summer, 2013, at the BHI we will be exhibiting clock repair and dial restoration, so we hope you will join us!
 
"SalonQP 2012" will be at the Saatchi Gallery, The old Duke of York's Barracks on the Kings Road in London. We shall be exhibiting alongside the world's finest watchmakers. Do come and say hello.

olympics

Originally built in 1558 and given a new facade in 1849 when the adjoining town bridge was re-built, our shop is a typical example of Ketton limestone and Collyweston stone roof construction. 2012 saw both the Queen and the Olympic Torch whiz by.

We are on the same side of the road
(the old "Great North Road") and just over the bridge from one of Englands great coaching inns: The George Hotel which dates back around a thousand years. It's comfortable rooms and restaurants are soothed by a number of fine antique clocks.

Parking is available on Bath Row. Please note carefully where you park: some spaces are free, some are charged. There is, just, space to get a vehicle to our back door for deliveries/ collection. The postcode to our back door is PE9 2HG.
 
We have a positively EVIL parking attendent who polices the land behind our shop. The parking is controlled by County Parking Enforcement. Please ensure you display your details and time of arrival clearly in the windscreen. We cannot be held responsible for any parking disputes.
