â€œLangport Clocksâ€ is a bespoke clock making and restoration business run by Steve Brown. The engineering workshop and clock showroom is based within The Shakspeare Glass and Arts building. Here visitors can browse restored period clocks for sale, take in the complex, visit the coffee shop and enjoy the views over the river Parrett from the riverside balcony.
All aspects of clock restoration and repair are available, encompassing most types of clock:
Clock movements can be refurbished and missing or damaged parts re fabricated to customer or period specification.
Dials either painted or brass can be sympathetically restored to customer taste, or polished, gilded and silvered back to their original glory.
All elements of cabinet-work are also available from minor restoration to complete re builds. All cabinet making is bespoke and conducted to period and original specification or to customer requirements. All restoration projects are then French polished by hand, to original finish or to the customerâ€™s individual taste.
New bespoke clocks commissions are often undertaken. These are built to the highest standard and specification. Tailored to a specific brief, these are often unique and aspirational items.
