“We did have a retail shop in Bath for many years but now sell at fairs and online. We restore antique clocks for museums and the National Trust and in 2011 we were honoured to restore a clock and a barometer for two royal households.”

George Knight of Warminster is listed in Loomes’ Watchmakers and Clockmakers of the World which includes 90,000 makers from the 18th and 19th centuries, as working from 1848-75.
