The Clock Work Shop was established in Parchment Street, Winchester 25 years ago, where we specialised in the repair, restoration and sale of antique clocks and barometers.
Over the following years the business continued to grow, for both sales and restoration, until in 2017 the decision was made to leave the Parchment Street shop. We chose to leave Winchester primarily because of the need for more space and because of the ever increasing costs.
We are now operating from two different locations.
Unit G, The Kings Worthy Foundry, Winchester, Hampshire, SO23 7QA
Due to the nature of the job, we are often out and about and so our hours are now by appointment. We are here most week days, and can often arrange to meet you out of hours, but please call us first before setting out to see us.
Otherwise you can Email us or come and visit the workshop.
