OUR WORK

A selection of clocks repaired in our workshop. Click on an image for more details

Country Cottage Longcase Clock
These types of clock are my personal favourite. Especially when they've one hand like this example by William Burton of Kendal many are now over 300 years old. In Cumbria we are lucky enough to have some fine examples of these clocks. If cared for they will outlast you and the person you bequeath the clock to. Most are quite rightly treated as members of the family.
Antique clock conservation
Probably more than anything else you own your Antique Clock is a story book from the past. Signatures and dates are often found and always documented.
Pictured here is an inscription showing the clock number and the year it was made, The 'H P' denotes Henry Philipson of Ulverston. The Philipson's were trained by Jonas Barber of Winster and carried on numbering clocks in the same way the Barber dynasty had done. Careful cleaning is essential if this beautiful inscription is to remain intact
Skeleton clock
Skeleton Clocks have many forms, most are timepieces often having a 'passing strike', This example has quarter striking.
Striking fusee bracket clock
These clocks are the very best of English Clock Work. They were popular with the 'well to do' in the Georgian & Victorian era.
Fusee Wall Clock
Many of these clocks still survive today. These often have the title 'School or Railway' clocks. They could often be found at railway stations or in the old schools both long since vanished. These clocks require the fusee tension setting up properly if they are to be good timekeepers.
Long case or Grandfather  Clock
In Cumbria {formerly Westmorland & Cumberland} there are surviving examples of these clocks from the 18th & 19th century. If you are lucky enough to own one of these lovely clocks look no further than Cumbria Clocks for their care and conservation.
Vienna Wall Clock
These weight driven clocks were beautifully made. Care is needed when servicing as parts are fragile. Don't leave their care to chance?

Whatever you need call us

My first priority is 100% customer satisfaction. There is so much more to repairing a clock than just making it tick again. Many clocks repaired in the workshop are approaching 300 years old! It is vital that any intervention does not alter the original clockmaker's work. Many of the Longcase Clocks {Grandfather Clocks} that pass through the workshop have signatures of past repairers scribed more than 250 years ago, These are always documented and every part of a Client's clock is examined meticulously. We are very knowledgeable with regards to 19th Century French clockwork and expert in the repair of these beautiful clocks. Don't leave it to chance, if you'd like advice call us for a chat. Clocks are my passion and I aim is to be the best clock workshop in the North of England. We have many customers in the Lake District, Ulverston and Kendal areas but many from Lancashire and Yorkshire too. I know how much my Customer's love their clocks, knowing that I am determined to do the job right!
