The Museum

The collection contains a wide selection of timepieces, keys, tools and parts dating from the 19th century all the way through to the late 20th century. Many of these clocks on display were types and styles repaired every day by Diana and her father in their workshop, as well as some older and also rather unusual ones! You may spot some types you recognise or even used to own yourself!



There is also a range of activities for children right through the museum. Learning about time is fun with Mr George!

Take a journey through time with our watch collection which ranges from fusee (chain wound) pocket watches of the 18th and 19th centuries, right through to more modern mechanical wrist watches of the 1980s. There is also a wide selection of repairers tools and gadgets on display, as well as a small library of repair books which are available to browse through.

We also have what is thought to be one of the largest collections of watch dials in the country- around 900. The best of them are on display.
