Appleby (K.): Clockmakers of Cheshire
O/P. 152 pages, 12 colour and 12 b&w plates, 1999. This is the only book about Cheshire makers and the listing by town and village is most useful. The extracts from the Cheshire Sheaf, Chester Chronicle and Chester Courant provide useful information about the makers, which is not easily available elsewhere. This book has become hard to find. A very good clean copy, the dust jacket fairly good but with wear to edges and corners. (Ref: K5197 - F3)

Smith (B.): Clockmakers & Watchmakers of Stow on the Wold

Smith (B.): Clockmakers & Watchmakers of Stow on the Wold
NEW. 184 pages, 95 illustrations, 2024. A well researched new book, by Barnaby Smith, who has collected information about the Stow (Gloucestershire) clockmakers (especially the Archer family) for well over 30 years. Walter Archer was working in Stow by 1699 and his descendants continued in Stow until 1824. Other Stow makers worked from 1719 up to about 1939, the practitioners from the mid 19th century onwards being retailers/repairers not 'makers'. The book includes an appendix with details of (6 miles away) Moreton in Marsh clockmakers from the 1690's to the early 20th century. (Ref: N5238)
