A Dorset Collection of Clocks
How does a pendulum clock work?
With the development of the pendulum in 1670, the
Golden Age of Clockmaking arrived!
At A Dorset Collection of Clocks, over thirty longcase
("Grandfather") clocks line the gallery in date order,
showing the changes in clock fashion throughout the
18th and 19th centuries.
Alongside are English and French Turret clocks - a rare chance
to see movements that are usually hidden away
driving dials on churches or public buildings.
As featured on TV's "Flog it" !
