As a collector of early clocks and sundials, I have designed this website to illustrate a small selection of interesting clocks that - in my opinion - have a certain historical, primitive, quirky, or rustic charm about them. With rare examples dating from the mid seventeenth century and even earlier ones in the pipeline, I hope that by showing some of them here, it will help bring others to light and add to the excitement and mystery that I believe these fascinating early antique time pieces have.








Click on the link below to visit my new website which illustrates a small collection of interesting Northern Clocks that I believe were possibly made for the Quakers and non-conformists in the Cumbrian area from around 1690 by the Wigton School of Clockmakers, headed by John Sanderson of Wigton.
